Open Studios May 2018
I'll be opening my studio to visitors in May 2018 as part of Open Up Sheffield. Now in its 20th year, Open Up is one of the largest and most successful open studio events in the UK outside London, involving over 100 artists and around 5,000 visitors.
At Trafalgar Studios we're a diverse and friendly bunch of artists and makers covering fine art, painting, photography, jewellery making, illustration, and more. Open Up is a great opportunity to talk to us about what we do, find out about tools and techniques, and maybe buy something that catches your eye.
I'll be inviting visitors to make their mark on my studio wall - a large scale evolving installation inspired by frescoes and ancient cave art. You can follow its development on Instagram via the hashtag #unpreciouswall.
You'll also be able to see the sets and props used to make the miniature roomsets from my series 'This is the house' and 'World I have not made'.
Open Studios runs over two weekends in May: the 5th, 6th and 7th and then the 12th and 13th. I'll be open from 12.00 - 16.00 on each of those days. If there are other specific artists who you'd like to visit, please check their individual opening times as they may be different to mine.
You can find us at: Trafalgar Studios, 118 - 120 Trafalgar Street, Sheffield S1 4JT.
PLEASE NOTE: The studios are located on the second floor of an old warehouse which unfortunately does not have a lift. Access is via two flights of stairs.
