You may have heard the sad news of the devastating fire at Carla Pownall’s studio last week; her studio and all her equipment were destroyed in a matter of minutes. Unfortunately her insurance will not pay out so we are raising money to get her up and running again – hopefully well before our open studios weekend next June! If you would like to help with a donation – however small, every little helps – there is a Just Giving page here.
If you have not had the chance to visit Carla’s studio then you can find out a bit more about it in this lovely video.
Wirral Open Studio Tour is the event in which local artists invite the public to visit their studios, workshops and display spaces. It is an excellent opportunity to talk first-hand to the artists and to view their work in the environment in which it was created, or to just enjoy exploring the various venues attempting to answer that eternal question ‘What do artists do all day?’
Our artists work in a variety of disciplines including painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, glass, textiles and jewellery; so whatever you’re interested in there will be something for you.
