Winter Open Studios. Our studio doors will be open to the public from 11am-6pm throughout the weekend of 6th/7th December 2014. All welcome!
Deborah Colman works with dye and cloth using the ancient Japanese art of Shibori to create fabric that is marked by folding, stitching and tying. Instead of the traditional indigo dye used in Japan she uses a varied palette of rich colours to cross-dye the fabric to striking effect on scarves and cushions. She is also working on a collection of screen printed fabrics for interiors, based around her drawings and block prints. See her fabrics in studio G8 during our Open Studios Weekend, #hackneychristmas.
Aneta Regel’s ceramic forms (studio G2) are an exploration of material qualities and its combinations. Her work conveys a sense of transformation and the illusion of the passage from one state to another. See her work at our #hackneychristmas Winter Open Studios weekend!
Catherine Hennessy in G1 will be showing small, fast drawings: landscapes made through train windows, streetscapes through café windows, gesticulating poets’ hands, and some large Japanese landscapes.
Iro Tsavala, in studio G9, will be showing handmade, small edition books and original prints. Exploring wordless narratives and storylines inspired by everyday encounters.
In Studio G3 Akiko Hirai Ceramics invites us to “Come and see my new gallery space at the Chocolate Factory N16”. Her show will also include a rug by Jason Collingwood and paintings by Ivan Kochkarev. #hackneychristmas
Catherine Jacobs in G16 will be showing photographic landscapes that are made both in the studio and on location. Her work invites us to explore our subjective states. Don’t miss her work at our #hackneychristmas open studios!
See Jo Davies’ handmade porcelain art and design objects, made to be both beautiful and tactile, in studio G6 at our #hackneychristmas open studios weekend.
In studio G8 Tal Regev will be showing paintings concerned with the embodied experience of trauma. Through the materiality of painting itself, she explores memory, loss, separation and the effect of pain.
Throughout our #hackneychristmas open studios, Helen Rawlinson (studio F5) will have her current stock of screen printed lampshades and cushions for sale at up to 25% off. Plus, new ideas, loads of stocking fillers and for the first time, diffusers will be available for her larger lampshades – no more staring up at bare bulbs!
Lydia Bauman (studio F9) will be showing a wide variety of landscapes, recent gold leaf triptychs and small Yorkshire Studies just back from an exhibition ‘Art in Yorkshire from Turner to Hockney’ in Mercer Galleries, Harrogate.
