How do you see art and design as it is created? How do you buy art before it is even out there? How do you pick up a cool present direct from the source?
Come to GWS Christmas Open Studios. It is a rare chance to explore Great Western Studios and to meet the artists, designers and craftspeople that inhabit it. This is a unique opportunity to see developments at the cutting edge of contemporary art and design.
Plus this December: A unique sample sale from Orlebar Brown with a preview of their spring season available to buy. An ilovegorgeous sample sale – beautiful outfits for every child. Pitman Tozer and Threefold will be doing their excellent Architect’s Surgery, and there will be a new multicoloured children’s art trail. Sundog – an off spring of the brilliant Penguin Orchestra – will be playing music during the weekend.
A jewellery fest featuring selected stalls will fill the atrium, showing a range of one off beautiful jewellery designs by excellent makers – an ideal gift is in easy grasp. There is a market place of contemporary delights outside. With mulled wine, a BBQ, tea and cakes, and the added excitement of ping pong tournaments in the courtyard, there is something for everyone.
Christmas Open Studios is all round family entertainment. Come and get Christmas ideas, see art and design in the making and have a fun filled Winter Weekend.
