Derbyshire Open Arts 2012

From Saturday 2nd to Tuesday 5th of June, we’ll be opening the studio to the public as part of Derbyshire Open Arts 2012. This event offers an exciting opportunity for the whole family to see what goes on behind the scenes in studios and workshops and discover some of the secrets behind the making of paintings, ceramics, textiles, glass and much more. Glossop is rapidly becoming a centre for established and emerging artists and craftspeople and this is an opportunity to meet and talk with them about their practice and to see their work in a welcoming and informal atmosphere. During your visit you will get the opportunity to see work in progress, watch demonstrations and, of course, have the chance to purchase or commission work.

Full details of all the artists, images of their work and a detailed map showing the location of all the venues participating in this free event over the bank holiday weekend can be seen in the free brochure available at the library and many other places around Glossop. The artists are using the Oakwood pub on the High Street as an information centre. There will be friendly people there to help visitors find their way to the various venues and a specially created interactive map. New this year is an interactive quiz for children – all entries completed and handed at the Oakwood will be entered into a prize draw for a children’s art set donated by Wains Services of Glossop.
