Arnup Studios opened its doors to visitors on Saturday 30 November and Sunday 1 December 2019, to celebrate the newly-renovated creative spaces and our wonderful new studios. There were ceramics, paintings and sculpture on show and a great time was had by all! Thank you to everyone who came along and to those who sent their best wishes and who helped.

Arnup Studios is run by Hannah Arnup, who grew up here with her siblings, her sculptor mother, Sally and ceramicist/painter father, Mick. All of the artists here today are delighted to be able to continue the creative use of Sally and Mick’s studios.

Here are some pics of my studio (The Gallery Studio) from the weekend…
