We've had such a lovely day here at 358. Thanks to all the visitors that ventured out. Also a big thanks to our exhibitors that were on duty @dawns_papercut_lightboxes @petataylorart @greenjam1 and Mark!
We'll be back next weekend Sat & Sun 11-5.
This stunning Mirror was created by one of our exhibitors Ed Harrison. Made from Bur Yew and laburnum, the Yew was one of the oldest in the country and was once struck by lightning. 🌩️ When Ed began to work on the wood, part of the middle was almost fossilised like stone. The original form of the wood has been preserved and finished off with some beautiful laburnum oystering around the edge of the mirror. It's a truly magnificent, one off piece!
Next week, we'll be posting a short video of Ed talking about it!
Happy Easter! The brochures for this May @artistsopenhouses have been released, loving the illustration by @penelope_kenny . We will be opening the workshop to the public for the 4 weekends in may with @ewa.ducarte and @lizbizk & @marekmachlowski ! We are number 12 in Brunswick Town trail.
The Ladli girls - proud as punch wearing their necklaces. And so they should be! Handcrafted from silver and double gold plated, using semi precious gems; Garnet, Labradorite, Black Spinel, Blue Spinel, and Pyrite ✨ these girls made 33 necklaces. Our Rosie Odette company provided the materials. If we sell each piece at £65 we will raise over £2,000 for the Ladli project. Ladli supports and empowers street kids from Jaipur, all the money goes directly to the girls that made these beautiful necklaces! We also created special handmade boxes decorated with the golden fingerprints of the Ladli girls that made these very necklaces. Our goal is to sell all 33 by the end of Brighton May Festival. If you would like to support our cause come on down to our May Open Houses 14a Wilbury Rd Hove, 4 Chanctonbury Rd Hove and purchase your Ladli necklace ✨ www.rosieodette.com #Ladli#hoveartstrail#brightonmayfestival#sevendialsartists#theflamingohouse#openhouse#AOH#brighton#charity#india#jaipur#streetkids#empower#transformation#treasure#children 💕
