Waverley Line Open Studios success!

I and 4 others have been busily preparing for the first ever Waverley Line Open Studios (artists open studios) since the beginning of the year. And finally on Saturday we opened our doors to the public for people to see what we do, how we do it and get lots of other questions that they might have answered.

Julia Laing, Kiki Pearson, Andrea Geile, Kirsty Palmer and myself set up our studios in our homes and industrial estate studio (Andrea!) and we had in the region of 50 folk though our doors on the day – 10 May 2014.

We established Waverley Line Open Studios primarily to promote and support professional artists and designer/makers in the area. By making our studios accessible to the public, inviting visitors to engage with us and see first-hand how we run our creative practices, our sources of inspiration and our methods we aim to raise awareness and value of the creative industries in the area.

I was quite keen for visitors to see and understand my creative process, how my ideas are generated and developed. It was great to be able to spend time with visitors unpicking what happens in my brain when I start creating and I had some great feedback!

Here are some photos from the day and the preparations, hope you enjoy.
