Parndon Mill Open Studios - THIS WEEKEND

A talented and diverse community of artists, craftspeople, designers and architects will be opening the doors of 30 studios over the weekend.

More of the artists will be demonstrating how they work and offering visitors the opportunity to participate, and once again glassblowing will be particularly exciting.

There will also be stone carvers skilfully working in the back yard.

This year the Art Play Tent which invites children to express themselves creatively will include working with clay. This might be messy, but should be good fun!

The food will be as delicious as always, this year including Ghanaian cuisine on the menu!

We hope you will come and bring your family. This is such a great opportunity to learn about, enjoy and participate in the arts.

This year’s event should be better than ever.

Saturday and Sunday (10-5)
