I’m now halfway through Warwickshire Open Studios getting to know my fellow exhibitors and visitors.  The weather was changeable at first but visitors still came, looked and some bought.  Now we have art in the sun!!!!!  The view is fabulous and there has been plenty of chat, gossip and productive.

I went into this not knowing how I would do, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised.  Some of each of my ‘strands’ have sold and favourable comments made.  My parents visited from Cheshire especially to support me and my eldest has been invaluable looking after his younger brother.  Friends have popped in and familiar faces seen.

The linocut demonstration went well, some created their own stamp and were intrigued how reduction linocut worked.  They relaxed and managed to switch off from their worries for an hour or so.

I’ve made new friends (I hope) with my fellow exhibitors, Deborah, Sarah and Helena, and am definitely looking forward to the next week.  We are open Wednesdays to Sundays  until 30th June 11am to 4pm with ‘late night opening’ Thursday and Friday til 8.
