As you may already know, here at Godinton we are lucky to have some exceptionally talented artists and craftspeople with studios on the estate. On the 8th & 9th of December they will be opening up their studios, ready for us all to have a close up look at the wonderful work they do, open from 10-4 both days. We can’t wait to join them by the fire pit for some mulled wine and festive nibbles!
Open Studio events such as this are a great way to view creative work. They offer the chance to see what inspires the artist, works in progress, and even ask the artist questions you may not otherwise have a chance to.
There will be five studios open at the Swinford Studios here on the estate, where you will be able to see skills ranging from art to furniture restoration from exhibitors such as: Jane Richardson showing her pottery, Lee from Greece with handmade silver and precious stone jewellery, Liz Gemmet’s artworks, Mandy Monroe’s textiles and quilting, Gill Bridgestock’s hand beaten silver and pewter, and The Woodman and his Wife showing handmade wooden wares.
