Mudslinging again....

I say mudslingers but what I really mean is hard working ceramicists have been in The Art Studio once again, manically making vessels, decorations, and glazing furiously.

I hope you guys are ready to dig deep and support your local Arts and Mental Health Charity by purchasing some of our lovely handmade items from the craft fair in the Arts Centre Washington on the 2nd November 2013!

I will certainly be adding to my own collection of tree decorations as all of the proceeds go towards new projects in The Art Studio.

We are also in the process of finalising some dates for outreach work in the community, this is where we will be bringing The Art Studio to you!

On Wednesday November 20th 2013 and Saturday November 23rd 2013 between 1pm and 4pm, two of our artists will be offering free mono-printing taster sessions in the education room of the library in Fawcett Street, Sunderland.

Its completely free to take part and there are no age restrictions for the activity (although younger ones will need supervision). We will be taking our charming city of Sunderland as our inspiration you will learn the basics of creating your very own print.

There will be resource materials there for you to use but if you have specific photos or drawings of Sunderland that you would like to use then please bring them along.

Our artists on the day will be Jo Howell and Karen Dodsworth who are both experienced print makers, so get yourself along for a free afternoon of creative printing!

Remember you can find out more information from our facebook and website.
