Chichester Art Trail Open Studios 2022:
WHAT IS AN OPEN STUDIO?
“An Open Studio is an experience in itself. It offers the exciting invitation to see artists’ [and designers’] work in the context of its creation”. – CAT
Open Studios provide the ideal opportunity to see inside the very place where ideas and concepts creatively come to fruition. Edward’s studio and workshop is at the very heart of his business, and he would like to ‘open the doors’ and share it with you as part of the Chichester Art Trail.
It is an ideal opportunity to visit (or revisit). You will be able to see a display of Edward’s furniture, see work in progress, meet some of the team, and of course, most importantly, Ed will be available to discuss his work, techniques, and design inspiration. We would love to meet you for the first time or see you once again at this event.
We will be open over the two weekends of the trail: Saturday 30 April, Sunday 1 May and Saturday 7, Sunday 8 May 2022 from 10.30am to 5pm daily (please note we are closed on the bank holiday Monday). All welcome!*
Ed first joined the Chichester Art Trail in 2018, and this is his fourth open studio with the trail (2020 was missed for obvious reasons!!). The fabulous Nicola Hancock (former Chair of CAT) conducted a studio interview with Ed back then, that is still highly relevant today. In the interview Ed discusses the studio, workshop, tools, and the daily routine.
This year the Chichester Art Trail Open Studios celebrates its 21st anniversary and sees 159 local artists exhibiting a wide range of work across 132 venues in and around the city of Chichester, West Sussex.
We are at venue 41: Edward Johnson Ltd, Pea Barn, Old Park Farm, Old Park Lane, Bosham, Chichester PO18 8EX
Please find directions here.
*Please note: We politely request that all children are accompanied by an adult due to the nature of the workshop setting.
