It’s that time of the year again…
Studios in and around Camberwell will be throwing their doors open to the public on Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 June between 11am and 6pm.
A year ago now I moved to Empress Mews, a tranquil courtyard which is home to a diverse range of artists, designers and makers as well as an innovating force in the creative Camberwell community. The work on show during the Open Studio Weekend encompasses gift and homewares, art prints, photography, painting, sculpture, fashion textiles and jewellery.
I will have prints, decorative pieces, upcycled furniture and my new collection of decoupaged glass dishes among other things.
I will also be holding a jewellery sale to clear stock from previous collections, with many items from only £10: you will be able to choose from a wide selection of necklaces, earrings and brooches that I have now discontinued.
Creative neighbours in the Mews include interiors brand Mini Moderns, printmaker Pauline Amphlett and Norwegian crafts company Smed. The upcoming Camberwell Open Studios event is spread across 15 locations ranging from large studios to artists’ homes, with up to 100 creators opening their doors to art lovers, collectors and gift seekers: download the full brochure here or, better still, pick up a copy when you visit us and we’ll help you plan a route so that you make the most of your visit.
How to get here:
Empress Mews is just off Kenbury Street, London SE5 9BT. On-street parking is free after 6.30 on weekdays and all weekend.
If you’re coming by public transport, the nearest bus routes are 35, 45 and 345 (lilford Road stop); nearest train stations Denmark Hill and Loughborough Junction. Brixton underground is just over a mile away.
If you happen to be free on Friday 17 June, please join us for drinks and nibbles between 6 and 9 pm when all the Empress Mews studios will be holding a private view.
I look forward to seeing you at some point during the weekend!
