Cambridge Open Studios 2021…
…is back this year and there are four studios open in Milton, two of which are open from tomorrow. One thing is different; the familiar yellow guidebook is only available online or via the easy to use app.
Professional artist and printmaker Alison Hullyer’s garden studio in Hall End (off Fen Road) is open on the first three weekends 3rd & 4th, 10th & 11th, 17th & 18th July. She will be demonstrating various printmaking techniques and have for sale original prints, cards, screen-printed tea towels, wrapping paper and her popular range of coasters. She also offers free delivery within the village, use the code MILTON at the checkout on her website or find her cards in Milton Post Office.
Jane and Chris Thomas are also exhibiting in Hall End. Jane’s work includes delicate watercolours and mixed media book illustrations. Chris is exhibiting his surreal series of photos showing ‘Unusual Occurrences at Hall End’ in addition to his intriguing window into the world through the microscope. Both artists will have a range of their published books and cards available. They will be opening their ’studio’ on the middle two weekends.
On the first and second weekends Richard Morgan of 31 Cherry Close, will be showing his colourful mosaics using various media, in abstract and representational styles. Come and have a go at a collaborative mosaic!
Cheryl Bird and Linda Bartlett are open on the second and third weekends and will be showing their contemporary handmade silver jewellery with semi-precious gems, pearls and sea-glass. Their work can be found in the studio in the beautiful garden of 6 Cambridge Road.
All the Milton studios have easy parking, disabled access, entry is free and they are open from 11am until 6pm and at other times by appointment.
Look out for the bright yellow flags springing up around the village and surrounding areas that signify a studio is open.
