My 'hideaway' art studio on Johnsons Island is opening it's doors next weekend, Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th May, for two days of artistic delights, live music and creative inspiration. A little blurb on it below -
Johnsons Island is home to a flourishing colony of artists and crafts-people. Gazing at the shimmering canal waters from its eclectic collection of buildings it is easy to understand why.
Sculptors, painters, printmakers & artisans from this thriving community will be opening the doors to their studios over the weekend of 12th to the 13th May from 10am-6pm.
Nestled beside the first lock linking the Thames to the Grand Union Canal, one passes the Brewery Tap on Catherine Wheel Rd, before crossing a footbridge and entering into another world. History, art and nature are woven together in this unique island setting, as Samuel Pepys would agree when he sailed past for an illicit assignation with the Brentford lady in 1660!
