First of all I must apologise for my very belated blog all about my open studios weekend, it has been a busy few weeks! So without further ado let me tell you how it all went…
…amazingly well! In fact I was a little shell shocked when visitors started arriving by the hoards. Overall I had nearly 300 visitors over four days to my little studio. Everyone was very complimentary and they really did seem to enjoy their visit. So many people stopped to have a cup of tea and a cupcake or two while browsing my array of work. I even made a few sales and scored myself a couple of potential new commissions (smiley face). I have to say I loved the fact that so many people had heard about ‘Lulu the caravan’! It was nice to see people sitting in her browsing my portfolio or playing vintage games! In fact I think I upset a few Dads (their daughters all want vintage caravans now) so sorry Dad’s!
If you didn’t get a chance to come and visit please take a peek at some photos of all the action below.
So in summary it was amazing, a huge amount of fun, hardwork and completely exhausting all at the same time. I will definitely do it again next year!
I would also like to say a huge thank you to my partner Charlie and Rose for helping me out over the weekend. I really couldn’t have done it without you both. Also to Becca for letting me borrow her beautiful bunting and all her help too. I also can’t forget the open studios team- you guys did a fab job organising the whole event!
Oh yes and before I go back to my ink stained desk my studio is now open by appointment so please contact me if you would like to come and visit or put a note in your dairy for next years Isle of Wight Open Studios 2013. See you there!
(The pics of inside ‘Lulu the Caravan’ will be posted later this week, finally!)
