The Camberwell Open Studios Weekend on 3-4 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 pictures, decoupaged glass dishes and decorative objects, as well as greeting cards and jewellery.
If you missed seeing my collaged paintings at the recent Affordable Art Fair, here’s another chance to see a wide selection of these new pieces – all framed and ready to be taken to new homes!
‘The Lockdown Companions’ is a collection of quirky articulated collage dolls I started making when we were all staying home. Quite a few more have been added since as the original ones have been flying the nest…
Invited Artist: Sarah Hamilton
I’m delighted to have invited artist Sarah Hamilton showing at the studio once again: Sarah makes exquisite watercolour paintings and drawings inspired by natural forms, geometric shapes, landscape and the built environment. She will be showing original works, prints and cards.
Elsewhere in the Mews:
My neighbours at Studios 2 and 8 will also be opening their doors to the public for the weekend.
Find fine artists Emanuele Gori (above) and Paul Draper (below) at Studio Number 2, where they’ll be showing an amazing array of work ranging from architectural drawings and prints to sculpture.
Printmaker Pauline Amphlett is at Studio Number 8, where she’ll be showing a wealth of textiles, paintings and prints.
