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.



Festive Open Studios Weekend, 6 & 7 December 2014

We hope you can join our seasonal celebrations as once again we are holding our annual Festive Open Weekend this coming Saturday and Sunday,
6 & 7 December, 11 am to 5 pm.

View an exciting range of work by our artists and makers whilst sampling our famous Brooklyn Mulled Cider or our alcohol-free hot apple punch.



The studios are very busy at the moment as everyone is madly getting work ready for our annual Winter Open Studios leading up to the festive season.

Angie Rogers has designed this year’s poster using one of her woodcut and paper cut artworks based on memories of the hoar frost coated Hebden Bridge a couple of winters ago. The work is titled ‘Frozen North’ and is part of a series looking at the idea of ‘The North’.

The Festive Open Studios are always a cheery and convivial event and so we hope to see all our friends and supporters from near and far at the end of the month.

Made and Done!

We had a great time at the Making And Doing weekend in the studio.

Visitors from Hebden Royd and beyond crammed in; tots ‘n’ teenagers, mums and dads, grannies and granddads.  All enjoyed the hands-on experiences of printing linocuts and 
monoprnts as well as decorating bunting for next year’s Tour de Cragg. What a wealth of talent there is in this beautiful area.

Open Studio Cheer

Dazzling sunshine and cobalt skies set the scene for our Open Studios at the weekend, filling our spaces with brilliant light in the morning.  A steady stream of visitors were welcomed by the cinnamon and gingery aroma of the famous Brooklyn mulled cider.

There are lots of lovely things about Open Studios – the spruced up studio spaces, new work on show and the artists all gathered together but the best aspect is the opportunity to talk to our visitors. People are so enthusiastic, knowledgeable and interested its great, so Thank You to all who took the time to call in.

Our stalwart supporter and friend Geoff Mitchell kindly took these fab photos on Sunday morning:
