TEESDALE OPEN STUDIOS 2018

I love visiting Open Studios and what a treat it was to come across Teesdale Open Studios last weekend. AND to find they are also on THIS WEEKEND.

Teesdale Open Studios are organised and supported by Teesdale ArtNet. You can find out more about them by following this link to their website.   https://www.teesdaleartnet.org.uk/

 

TEESDALE OPEN STUDIOS 2018

I discovered Teesdale Open Studios whilst taking tea at Eggleston Hall near Barnard Castle.  With just 15 minutes to go before the Open Studios closed for the day, I was very pleased to see many of them were open on Monday – and also this Bank Holiday Weekend. 

I had a look in their brilliantly helpful booklet and discovered there were quite a few artists I would like to see close by.  I took a very pleasant circular route, starting at Mickleton, (near High Force) Romandkirk, Cotherstone, Barnard Castle and finishing in Middleton. Not only was it a great drive, but I thoroughly enjoyed meeting and talking to new artists.

I particularly enjoyed chatting to potter and Open Studios organiser Judy Caplin. Her studio is in an enviable location, and I love her work.  Find out more about here by following this link:  https://www.judycaplinceramics.co.uk/

I also really enjoyed my visit to the exhibitions by Margaret Rhodes and Suzanne Williams at Startford School Community Centre.  Margaret’s enthusiasm was a joy, and so was their offer of a cup of tea and a piece of cake.

THOSE I’D STILL LIKE TO SEE

I ran out of time on Monday, but as the Open Studios is running this Bank Holiday weekend too, there is still time for another visit and a gorgeous drive around Teesdale.
