The Sorting Office Summer Open Studios 2015

On Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th June The Sorting Office will be throwing open its doors for its annual Summer Open Studios.

This is a fantastic opportunity to see behind the scenes of our thriving designer-maker studios. Meet our 16 artists, watch them at work and take part in demonstrations.

Illustrator Lisa-Jean Gardner will  be running a workshop for children, encouraging them to get messy with paints while creating colourful scales for her rather large fire-breathing friend! And on Saturday artist Andy Reaney will be running a screen-printing makers station in The Sorting Office’s new Screen-print Cabin giving visitors of all ages the opportunity to screen-print their own canvas tote bag using bespoke templates created by two of The Sorting Office artists: Pattern Designer Mariska Parent and Ceramic Designer Sheena Bond.

There will also be the chance to shop for exquisite handcrafted goods and designs made by The Sorting Office residents, and for the first, The Sorting Office will also be hosting an independent Makers Fayre featuring work from other local artists and designers on their own stalls.
