Open Studios

Today was the first day of the Creative Skills Open Studios.  This is the week when artists throughout Cornwall invite people to visit their studios and see their work.

Despite not having many visitors I have had a great day!  Open Studios gave me the incentive to get my workshop sorted out and ready to work in after leaving it rather messy (to say the least!) over the winter.

During the course of the day I have managed to come up with an idea for a range of cards and have started making some as well as just enjoying having a whole day in my workshop, listening to the birds in the garden and thinking of ideas for future pieces of work.

I am open again  on Monday and look forward to even more creativity (and hopefully visitors!).


  1. I'll be in to see you Tuesday - put the kettle on! xx

  2. Looking forward to seeing the cards Jo, good luck with Open Studios. Lesley

  3. Really glad I visited your Open Studio today. Very interesting creative work and so inspiring. I loved your cards with the weaving, your vibrant silk velvet scarves, your beautiful beaded jewellery, so many goodies!!

    I hope you get many more visitors to your Open Studio and would recommend it to visitors to St. Ives this week

    ps. Thank you very much for the gift - a really nice touch and very thoughtful!!
