Shrewsbury Open Studios: Week 1

 Last weekend (6th & 7th July) saw the opening of our Shrewsbury Open Studios and for this first weekend I was exhibiting my work at the Creative Studio in the centre of Shrewsbury, which is run by Helen and Richard Foot.

Above is a small selection of my work and below is my new lino print of Moreton Corbet Hall  which is a Tudor mansion house situated a few miles northeast of Shrewsbury in Shropshire.  My original lino print depicts the ruined shell of the Elizabethan wing which is of an Italian style and was badly damaged during the English Civil War.

Richard Foot and Arron Flower work together as R&A Collaborations to make short artistic documentary films and below is a selection of the products from makers that they have worked with. Some of their videos are available to view on their Vimeo site
