New year is a good time to start new things so I have enrolled in an e-course to learn all about surface pattern design! I only started yesterday but they have already got us going out and about with sketchbooks and cameras in hand to collect inspiration from our surroundings. These are from my walk to the studio this morning:
Open Studios is over! The pictures are coming down from the walls which is making us all a little bit sad, but we did have such a brilliant time. We have a bit of a taste for it now and there is talk of doing a Christmas Open Studio too so keep an eye on our Derby Road Facebook page to see what we are all up to.
I am packing up some of the pictures I sold and getting ready to deliver them to their new homes, here they are for the last time…
Here at 22 Derby Road we are preparing for another sunny weekend of Open Studios. Last weekend was a great success and we had a chance to meet lots of lovely people who said awfully nice things about our work – brilliant! If you are about over the weekend then do come and find us; myself, Nicola Killen, Ian Farrell and Neil Warmsley will be here at the studio from 11am to 6pm both Saturday and Sunday.
22 Derby Road is a hive of activity at the moment as myself and my studiomates Nicola, Ian and Neil prepare to open our studio to the world this weekend. Pictures are being framed ready to go up on the walls and books are still arriving – it’s all everso exciting and we are really hoping people will come along and have a look! We will be open from 11am – 6pm the 19th & 20th, and the 26th & 27th July, our address is: 22 Derby Road, Cambridge, CB1 7BU.
My brand new Grubbies scarves have just arrived and look gorgeous! Have a sneak peek below at the new scarves and head on over to Grubbies website to take advantage of the last couple of days of their summer sale.
Open Studios is coming around fast and here at 22 Derby Road preparations have started getting underway! We are opening our studio on the 19th/20th July and the 26th/27th July so if you live in or around Cambridge then do come and have a look. Myself, Nicola Killen, Neil Warmsley and Ian Farrell all share a studio and we will be showing illustrations, paintings, photographs and prints. You will also be able to buy copies of some of our books, my Grubbies scarves and Ian will be taking photographs for a live exhibition of portraits throughout both weekends!
