Brighton Open Houses and Studios

Its the second week of Brighton's Open Houses and Studios this weekend with 61 venues opening for 2 weekends. We had a look at a few last weekend in between the rain storms and thought that they were fantastic.

Sarah is showing some prints, dolls and kits at 14 Southdown Avenue, - along with Maika Crampton - textiles, Wendy Jung - Cermaics, Gail Kelly - Linocuts, Vanessa Mooncie - crochet jewellery, and many others. (below)

The Real McKay - 59a Springfield Road, - Angela has put together a great exhibition of her prints paintings and books, along with guests such as Ramp (Roop and Al make pots) and Maiko Dawson hand made shoes.

We also went to The Dragonfly House 48 Ditchling Rise - 20+ artists and makers, selling ideal Christmas Presents! such as Joy Fox' s button jewellery, Wolfram Lohr's bags, wallets, and belts .
and 6 Clifton Street , with lots of makers (26 in all) including - Johny Hannah - screenprints, Melissa Simpson - leather bags, Hannah Bedford - Jewellery, and Mike Levy - figurative ceramic pots, tiles, mugs etc.

Hopefully the weather will be better this weekend as we have another batch of houses/studios to visit.
