South East Open Studios

It’s hard to believe it’s this time of year again. The cows are back in the park grazing amongst the buttercups and the long grass in the fields is perfect for the estate wildlife; last year we were lucky to witness a pair of barn owls hunting.

We are very lucky on the Godinton Estate to have craft studios and one of our resident artists, Jane Richardson, is participating in South East Open Studios in June. Jane’s work varies from tiles, bowls and mugs to sculptural pumpkins, chickens and even mermaids.

Jane gets a lot of her inspiration from the gardens at Godinton. Her popular robins on garden forks and spades debuted at the Sculpture Exhibition last year after seeing the gardeners working alongside the rather tame robins. One of Jane’s newest pieces is a series of gentle tactile boulders that she envisions to hide amongst the borders and then expose themselves depending on the season.

Jane also teaches pottery, running fun, friendly and informative classes from her studio.

During the South East Open Studios in June, Jane will be open for visitors on the dates below.
9th, 10th, 11th, 13th, 15th, 16th, 17th, 18th, 22nd, 23rd, 24th, 25th June.
Jane will be doing demonstrations on 13th, 15th, 16th, 17th, 22nd, 23rd June.
