Chichester Art Trail 2021: Open Studios:

We have some fantastic news! We are really pleased to announce that once again we will be participating in the forthcoming Chichester Art Trail 2021. After last year’s trail being cancelled (due to obvious reasons) this year’s trail is all set to go ahead, albeit at a different time of year, this time in July!

We will be open over the two weekends of the trail: Saturday 10, Sunday 11 July and Saturday 17, Sunday 18 July 2021 from 10.30am to 5pm daily.

This is an ideal opportunity to visit (or revisit) our workshop and studio. You will be able to see a display of Edward’s furniture, see work in progress, meet some of the team, and of course, Ed will be available to discuss his work, techniques, and design inspiration with you. We would love to see you. All welcome*.
