This weekend I will be opening my studio to the pubic to participate in an annual open studio event in the Ouseburn.
It starts this Friday 25th November 17.00 – 20.00 and continues over Saturday and Sunday 10.00 – 17.00.
There is a cafe with refreshments to keep you warm… plus heaters. Yes our studio will actually be warm!
I’m based on floor 5 of 36 Lime Street where I share my studio with Judith Davies, ceramic artist whose work I adore!
I will be showcasing a range of work in response to my recent research trip to South Korea.
All year I have been experimenting with natural and synthetic dyes and investigating the materiality of silk; a material which I have been using as a means to bridge my dual Korean/ UK heritage. All the silk I have on display comes from Hamchang, the last silk producing town in South Korea.
I’ll also have some older work in the form of artist books, maps and book sculptures alongside some experiments in paper folding.
In the Gallery a group exhibition exploring the various processes different studio artists use is on display throughout the weekend and I have two pieces of work in there too.
Some good friends and collaborators Hoes and Ditches will be greening up my space with some stunning teraniums and plants which are also available to buy alongside my work and textiles.
Check out all the details here.
Looking forward to seeing you this weekend!
