Looking Back: Open Studio 2011

My studio was open to the public during the last two weekends; it was very successful and I had a very enjoyable time. It is always nice to meet people face to face, show my work and demonstrate how it is made:

As usual, I made a short movie to give you a tour of my Open Studio:

Now it is back to work for me, concentrating on bookplates, handmade books and, hopefully, some personal images based on my walks through the local lanes.

Open Studio 2011

July 9-10th and July 16-17th 11am - 6pm

I am opening my studio during the next two weekends as part of the Cambridge Open Studios, which have run for over thirty years now. Click the banner for a link to the COS website. I am number 99 in the guide. If you cannot find my details, please email me (andyenglish*at*btinternet.com),

Here are some photographs from my last Open Studio in 2009:

There will be framed and unframed art for sale but you are welcome to come and just look; here is the 1865 Albion:

We will be printing on "Red", the 1902 Albion so you can see this lovely handpress in action:

I will also be demonstrating the process of engraving:

I will also have some of my handmade books for sale and - hopefully - the first finished example of my forthcoming print portfolio of illustrations to Susan Hill's "The Woman In Black"; I will be taking orders at a pre-publication price.

I would be lovely to see you over the next two weekends. Do say if you read my blog or follow my tweets or Facebook information page. If you cannot make it, send your friends.
