Elaine Bolt – Open Studio and News – Spring 2018

I hope this message finds you well and enjoying the lovely weather we’ve been having.
May is nearly here so it’s time for my Open Studio weekends. Find out the details below.
You can also see updates on my latest activities and where you’ll find me and my work over the next couple of months.

Open Studio

This May I will be opening up my studio at Atelier 51 in Brighton for four weekends, giving you a chance to look around my workshop and some of the other artists spaces in the building.

I will have new work available to buy and for the first time will be demonstrating throwing on the wheel in my studio for the open weekends.

The dates are: May 5/6th, 12/13th, 19/20th, 26/27th

Times: 11am to 5pm

I will be demonstrating ceramics and throwing on the wheel in my studio each weekend from 2pm – 3pm.

The open studios is part of Brighton and Hove’s huge ‘Artists Open Houses‘ event across May. So if you’re coming from further afield you can make a day of it and visit artists and makers all across the city. The Shop at Atelier 51 will also be extending upstairs so there will be lots of new top-range craft and art works to see, all selected by Made London organisers Tutton and Young.

I currently offer one to one classes where you can try throwing with porcelain or hand-building with clay at my Brighton studio.
These sessions can be booked individually for yourself or as a gift for someone else.

Dates can be arranged with me to find a day that suits you.
