welcombe open studios '10

this weekend coming is our last event for the summer, so we hope you can all come along to pay us a visit. the forecast is saying sunshine so it should be a lovely day out - as well as the artists studios to visit we have a lovely pub, the old smithy inn, about 150 yards from our studio and the beach is just down the lane. there is also the beautiful Marsland Valley Nature Reserve if you fancy having a walk around this lovely part of Devon that we live in.

Welcombe Open Studios, now in it's 5th year, sees artists opening their studios to the public this year for 3 days - 13th, 14th & 15th August.

pachadesign - we will be open from 10.30am to 4.30pm, with a selection of furniture & accessories. we will have a range of our reclaimed cornish slate mirrors & clocks, starting from £30 with some larger sculptural pieces too, our oak and slate lamps, leaf lanterns, and oak chopping boards starting at £5 for little ones perfect for chopping up garlic or chillies on. we will also have more sets of our new coasters and japanese sushi plates.

David Westcott - our local potter will have a wide range of slip decorated earthenware, raku pots and sculpture at Welcombe Pottery.

Rebecca Cohen - life drawing & painting, portraits, work on a personal theme and some one-off ceramics.

John Moat - books (novels, short stories, poetry collections), several limited editions, paintings, poem prints and etchings.

Rick Hall - Rick uses a strange drawing machine known as a twin elliptic harmonograph to produce beautiful images, rich in colour, depth & movement. He will also have smaller drawings starting at £5 for sale that we are sure will be snapped up! Rick's studio is a little further than the rest but absolutely worth the lovely drive along the coast road.

Welcombe lies on the coast at the border of North Devon & Cornwall, inbetween Hartland & Bude - click {here} to see where we are.
there will be leaflets with maps to find all studios in a few places in Welcombe (the local shop, the pub, the village hall & each studio) but all studios will be signposted around the village too.
we will all be open from 10.30am to 4.30pm so we hope to see you this friday, saturday & sunday.
