Some of the participants include Ysolda, Sarah Knox, Yoga Mix, Susie Wright, Rosy Barnes, Fiona Thompson and Chris Donnelly (Cyan Clayworks), Sally Ann Provan, Alistair Clark, William Lindsay and Kathryn Hinton. There are studios specialising in millinery, photography, glass, ceramics, jewellery, yoga, painting and much more!
Beaverhall’s industrial origins are clearly seen on the ground floor, where large warehouse spaces full of intriguing tools and equipment include , a yarn dyeing studio run by Ysolda and a vibrant workshop shared by set designers, cabinet makers and a mosaic artist.
Everyone is welcome to our event. There is a lift to access the second and first floors. However please be aware that these are working studios, some with potentally hazardous materials or tools and fragile artworks, and so children must be supervised at all times.
This is just a taster of some of the work you’ll be able to see! Why not like our facebook page for regular updates and more details on who will be taking part- @BeaverhallStudios, or follow us on Instagram @beaverhall_studios.
