I’ve had the most intense week ever! And it all finished with a bang yesterday, as I coordinated a fantastic event at Coughton Court to tie in with Warwickshire Open Studios. Three artists came to Coughton to sketch and paint in the grounds and I looked after them for the day! I had a fantastic time, and I couldn’t have asked for better weather. Thousands of people turned up to enjoy the National Trust house and stroll round the gardens so it was a great opportunity for artists to use the property to promote their own work and the purpose of Warwickshire Open Studios.
Warwickshire Open Studios lets local artists and designers open up their own studios to the public, and to also work together with other venues to host their work. Now an annual event, it has grown to become the country’s largest exhibition of art and craft. I heard about Open Studios last year, so I’m very lucky to actually be involved with it this year. Not only has it allowed me to work with artists and promote their work, but it has also allowed me to become inspired to do my own art again.
