Sorting Office Open Studios a Roaring Success

The Sorting Office Summer Open Studios were as popular as ever this year. The Open Studios coincided with Eastleigh Unwrapped Festival on Saturday 11th June, and opened over the Sunday for the first time. It was a rare opportunity for the public to see inside the studios and meet the artists.

Hundreds of visitors took the opportunity to look around the studios and browse the Makers Fayre. It was great to see so many new people there, many of them took the chance to buy directly from the residents and stall holders.

Sorting Office residents Biscuit Collective gave demonstrations, showing how they make their smooth Plaster of Paris ornaments, and their lino-cut printed lamp shades.

There was also the chance to try screen printing a tote bag with artists Claire Vine and Miesje Chafer. Don’t worry if you missed out on the workshops as there’ll some coming up where you’ll get the chance to print your own designs as screen prints or as lino cuts. Keep an eye on aspace’s facebook page for more details and dates or contact for more details.

The next Open Studios will be in the winter, making it the perfect time to grab Christmas gifts.
