The Camberwell Open Studios Weekend on 7-8 December is the perfect Christmas shopping opportunity to purchase art and beautifully made objects direct from local artists and designers. Whether you’re looking to explore behind the scenes of workshops that are not normally open to the public, commission gifts or buy unusual one-offs not available on the high street, you’ll find a wealth of choice available at the open studios in and around Camberwell.
Here at 6 Empress Mews, I’ll be showing brand-new collages, cushions, jewellery, decorative objects and greeting cards.
I’ll also have special studio offers on discontinued stock, including pictures and jewellery starting at just £10.
Elsewhere in the Mews:
At studio number 1 you’ll find Mr & Mrs House with their superb collection of vintage tapestries and a ceramic cat or two among many other delights.
Printmaker Pauline Amphlett is at studio number 8, showing all manner of prints on paper plus screen-printed and hand blocked textiles.

ARTIST & MAKER
My work is often humorous and whimsical – unless my romantic side takes over and then we enter into a fairy-tale territory of old-fashioned script, pages of books and music scores populated by chivalrous gentlemen, glamorous ladies, butterflies and rabbits.
