Getting ready for Open Studios always includes a lot of procrastination for me. Some prep I’ve done too early – like washing the floor, now dripped on again. Some too late – reorganising and pricing work.
I’ve made Parkin, and, for kids of all ages, chocolate cake topped with marshmallows. I’ve used Sue at the Quince Tree Blog‘s great chocolate cake recipe, which is also great with Maltesers.
A new idea for this year, I’ve also had some art greetings cards made up, using interesting images from my ceramic and 2D work. For galleries and exhibitions it’s important that images are plain, and just show the work. I’ve got a lot more stored pictures to get made into cards, so I’m looking forward to seeing what people think about them (please comment below if you want!)
So the Open Studio is Sat/Sun, 10/11 and 17/18 May, details and directions to Open Studio here, if you haven’t seen them already.
I don’t often get to see other people’s Open Studios, so for all of you who can’t make it here’s a short virtual tour!
