Hurrah! It is Open Studio Season again!

I was going to start this post with "the sun is out and studio is open"... but alas, it is pouring with rain but I'm sure a bit if wet weather never dampened peoples' enthusiasm for a nosy around some studios.

This year, the Arches Studios in Southampton have teamed up with the other Southampton Studios; Red Hot Press, Tower House and Unit 11 and have created an Open Studio Trail! All four studios will be open for two consecutive weekends and visitors will be able to walk the trail between them!  How Exciting!!

We have started a facebook group, so pop along to: https://www.facebook.com/groups/368749416519753/

Join us on 08 July 2012 at The Arches Studios and Red Hot Press where the Annual Wayzgoose Fete will take place!

Who’s involved?
Red Hot Press- SO14 3FE: Southampton’s fine art print workshop. During the Open Studios Trail we will be hosting an exhibition of work by members of Red Hot Press and have framed and unframed original artwork for sale, plus cards, books, badges and other printed ephemera.
