Open Studios

Well it’s the last day of this years Derbyshire Open Arts and we’ve had a great time. There is still time to come along and explore our artworks, talk to the artists and have a look around our studio. Catherine Carr, Ella Jensen & Philippa Maye are at the studios & gallery shop today.

And remember to call in at The Oakwood where you can view the large map created by Philippa and Erika showing all the venues and details of the work you can find there. We’ve had some lovely feedback about the map; not only has it helped visitors find us but they have also appreciated being able to seek out the artists they feel affinity with.

We’re open until 5pm and do hope to see you today.


Dead Chickens & The Dark Peak Corset

I’m not too sure what I’m writing about here as Erika’s new work has yet to be unveiled but the one view I have had (which I share with you below) suggests we can expect something different in her exhibition at the Studios during the Derbyshire Open Arts weekend. But the layering and textural finish remains so it’s maybe not too different…


On the corset front (pun clearly intended!) Ella has been busy hand painting and embroidering…here are  glimpses of the work in progress to tempt you…
