Last weekend all the studio spaces in the Bluecoat opened their doors to the public.
It was good to see all the newly refurbished spaces in use by local artists and makers and interesting to talk to some of them about their practice.
The studios are various shapes and sizes, some only big enough for one person others maybe three or four.
The print room is now back in action and print courses should be re-starting very soon which is great news.
The creative occupiers taking part were: Landbaby, Bob Porter, Purlesque, Mango Percussion, Display Centre, Jane Rees, Anthony Wong, bobbyandsophie, Agent Marketing, Pedro Pedraja, Bernadette O’Toole, Nawal Gebreel, Ben Egerton, Katriona Beales, Markus Soukup, Becs Andrews, Neil Keating, Nick Williams, Sacha Waldron, Nicki McCubbing, Julia Carter-Preston, Sense of Sound, Nook and Willow, Fittings Multimedia Arts, Sharon Mutch and A&R Photography.
