Seems I can't get enough of Open Studios.
I open my studio in Cambridge during July as part of the Cambridge group. I have got to know a lot of artists through this, I don't open for the whole four weeks but spend one weekend visiting other artists. Plus there is a local group of Artists in East Chesterton and we make a visitor's trail every year and get together once or twice a year socially.
I also join a few artists to do a Winter Open Studio, this year it will be at Diana Kazemi's house on 23 & 24 November. This is fun as it is just for one weekend and we hang endless Fairy lights and make mulled wine.
But this October I am doing an extra special Open Studio with my son, Owen de Visser, in Birmingham. Owen has watched me open my doors in July and found that there was no event like that at all in Birmingham so he started small in the Moseley area with 30 artists and this has now grown into a wider area and has 67 artists participating in 33 studios. And I am delighted to say I am joining Owen in his studio this year. Owen is a very talented photographer and I have taken paintings, prints, scarves and cards. Open 12 & 13 October in Gristhorpe Road, Selly Oak - look out for the signs.
