September 6th, 2014.
Thanks to all who came to our September Open Studio. It was the first time we had offered workshops at an open studio day and we were really pleased with the response. We had a steady stream of visitors all day, and it was great to see new faces amongst the old friends. Visitors enjoyed interacting with both activities and it is definitely something we will do again.
One of our visitors was 14 year old Megan from Long Preston. She really enjoyed setting up, shooting and editing some photographs of stones under Matt’s expert tutelage and spent a long time getting it all exactly to her liking. Here she is hard at work along with the finished product.

Hints and tips from Matt.
Any suggestions for titles?
In the pen and ink workshop, sisters Tara and Caitlin enjoyed exploring a new medium. Only one bottle of ink was spilt the whole day – though by an adult, not them! – which was less than Aly manages when working on her own. Both workshops were enjoyed by both children and adults.

Our next one is the second weekend of November as Alyson is at Kelbrook Art Fair the first weekend. We are hoping to offer workshops again. And the traditional home made (by Aly) cake. Please note that there is no Open Studio in October due to other commitments.
Workshop fodder for the masses – let them eat cake.
