Teesdale Open Studios

Wow summer is almost over! It seems to have flown by, and already the first leaves of Autumn are turning Golden Yellow. Here at Skylarc I have been so busy preparing for the Teesdale Open Studios and Christmas can you believe!

Today has been the first day of the Open Studios, and I was up bright and early busying around preparing a studio for all you lovely people to come and visit.

This morning saw me up a ladder .... yes you heard that right a LADDER hanging fabric from floor to ceiling. Now I'm not a particularly delicate person and if there is the slightest thing to trip on I will; so the sight of me up a ladder was something to behold, not dainty or lady like at all.
That aside my fabrics are now up and on display along side cushions throws and accessories and will be until Sunday 2nd October.

Through out this time you can visit my studio or any of the other 22 artists studios and chat directly about what inspires us, what we like or dislike, how we work, what mediums we use, and any other questions you can possibly think of. We really are under the spotlight over the coming days.

I personally would love to see any budding artists, practicing artists, start-up business, business ideas, and of course the happy customer, :) come and pick my brains perhaps I can help, and if you have work of your own bring it along its the perfect opportunity to get some useful advice and tips.

As your hopping from one studio to the next why not also take some time to enjoy the idyllic views Teesdale's countryside has to offer, don't forget your camera to snap some pictures even if it's just for the family album. There are some wonderful pubs and B&B's in the area with hearty food and rooms for over night stays, one loyal supporter is the Fox and Hounds in Cotherstone which will not disappoint on both aspects.

On our travels pick up one of the Teesdale Open Studios booklets which are available from any artists studio, which you can see on the website, Fox and Hounds Cotherstone, or select shops in Barnard Castle.

Skylarc looks forward to seeing you! Happy visiting!

Teesdale Open Studios is organised by Ray Landon,and consists of 23 local artists living in Teesdale.
