Cambridge Open Studios members' blogs

"Cambridge Open Studios exists for the purposes of promoting the making of original works of art and craft and to provide an opportunity for the public to become involved in the arts by meeting artists in their studios, seeing their work and how it is produced."

COS members' studios are open during four weekends in July, but by looking at these blogs you can visit these artist's studios 24/7 . . .

Gina Ferrari textile artist
Fan My Flame – musings of a textile artist
Gina creates exquisite colours and textures with machine embroidery – in addition her blog covers her love of sewing, knitting, gardening, cooking and drawing. Colourful and fun!

Andy English wood engraver
Wood Engraver
Andy is a true master of his craft, his blog explains the meticulous process of wood engraving and printing using his beautifully restored Albion press. A printmaking masterclass.

Karen Jinks artist and illustrator
Karen is a mixed media collage artist and illustrator, she creates subtle imagery using all kinds of creative techniques as well as photography, knitting, bookbinding and jewellery – Karen's studio is bursting with ideas and beautiful things.


  1. Thanks for pointing out these two blogs - I am going to take a tour of both.

    When I first saw, Cambridge Open Studios, I thought there were new tours planned. I'd love to be there some July to have a real-life look at the different studios.

  2. Celia, those are amazing works of art. Such incredible detail and I can only imagine how time consuming! I'll check both out. (my first post about my labyrinth is up and I linked back to you).

  3. Thanks Celia, what a great idea! Have bookmarked your blog, will reciprocate :D


I love reading all the comments (except for spam and advertising which I will delete) and I'll reply here in the comments under each blog post, it may take a few days if I'm busy.
