Exhibition at Artsmill

Two of our members have had work accepted for Artsmill’s Winter Fair this year.  The selling exhibition is over at Linden Mill in Hebden Bridge during late November, early December. Anna Gibson and Angie Rogers will both have 3 works on show and both have images chosen to go on the poster. It looks set to be a high quality show with a lot of interesting work on display. Looking forward to the preview on Sunday 22nd,  2 – 4 pm.


Brooklyn artist Hannah back in Antarctica

imageThis fabulous photo of tabular icebergs came today from our studio artist Hannah Lawson who works as an expedition leader and Zodiac driver on cruises to the polar regions and all sorts of other exotic places.

In between working trips Hannah can be found in her little studio space at Brooklyn making intricate wood engravings of the wildlife she encounters.

Festive Open Weekend 5th & 6th December 2015

It only seems yesterday that we were taking part in the Summer Open Studios here at Brooklyn Studios and yet the Autumn has rolled on by and its almost time to get the fairy lights out for our annual Festive Open Weekend which this year is taking place during the first weekend of December.

All are very welcome to visit us for a chat, some festive mulled cider or non-alcohol spiced apple warmer, and the opportunity to view new work by our artists and makers.
