Open Studios at the Briggait

I'm exhausted after a full on weekend in the studio - but a weekend in the studio with a difference as not much work was made at all. It was the official launch of The Briggait, the building in which my studio is situated, and so it was an Open Studio event where the artists opened their studio doors to the public.

After the Open Studios on Friday night there were speeches and then a performance in the main atrium space.

On Saturday and Sunday the studios were open from 12pm-5pm, and I enjoyed talking to the constant stream of people who came for a look at our work. I met some very interesting people and had some brilliant discussions.

I also enjoyed looking around the other studios in the building and meeting the other artists (many of whom I had never met before).

Photos of the weekend will be uploaded soon, but in the meanwhile, do take a look at the reviews and online images:
