As part of East Street Arts Open Studios 2015, I will be opening the doors to my studio in my home, and welcoming you to see where I work.
East Street Arts’ Open Studios 2015
11 – 12 July
(Helen Dryden’s house open Saturday July 11th, 11am – 2pm. Please email me at email@example.com if you need the address)
Explore studios. Meet artists. Buy art
Patrick Studios (St Marys Lane Leeds LS9 7EH)
Union 105 (105 Chapeltown Road Leeds LS7 3HY)
Barkston Studios (Barkston House, Croydon Street Leeds LS11 9RT)
Artist’s studios are fascinating places; “once inside there is a kind of magic that happens and you’re suddenly in the middle of a very rich and, I feel, privileged experience. Every studio is different because every artist is different. The set up, interior and approach to individual spaces is never the same.” Karen Watson (East Street Arts, Co-Founder & Artistic Director)
East Street Arts’ members are opening their doors and you are invited. Take some time and explore some of the most creative environments in Leeds; painters, sculptors, designers, filmmakers, performers, ceramicists, illustrators, writers, tailors, photographers and digital artists are all welcoming you behind the scenes.
So take the opportunity to meet the artists in their place of work, start a conversation, maybe buy some of their work and start your own art collection or build upon the one you may already have!
