This year, running throughout August and in conjunction with our Summer Showcase exhibition, we’ll be repeating our popular season of Open Studios at The Bramble Patch.

Open Studios are when some of our talented teachers generously bring their own materials, creative processes and work in progress along to our wet studio for the day(s), so that customers and students can see them in action. As well as working live, they’re happy to discuss their work with you, show you the techniques they use, and any answer questions you might have about classes they offer. All in all, it’s a wonderful chance to meet the people behind the beautiful quilts and other textiles, and learn a bit about how they create them.

This year our Open Studios include:

13-14 August : Frances Pickering

15 – 17 August : Edwina Mackinnon and Catherine Nicholls

19 – 20 August : Angie Hughes

21 – 22 August : Linda Maynard

23 – 24 August : Viv Denscombe

29 – 31 August : Stephanie Redfern and Hilary Beattie
