Artist's studios are open over the weekend of the 2-3 December in the town centre, 10am to 5pm.

Three venues and seven fabulous artists and makers.

Explore the hidden corners of Shrewsbury. Have a peek inside where the artists beaver away and find out how they cretate their work and what inspires them!

At 38c Wyle Cop, SY1 1XF will be me showing my latest 'embroidered' mosaic work and hosting Jill Leventon, who will be showing her beautiful enamel work. We will have lots of contemporary craft work on display, glasses of mulled wine and a very warm welcome.

In the studio above are Parker & Arrol, showing their gorgeous hand-painted silk velvets. Their work is both beautiful and functional as cushions, hangings and scarves.

At 5 Quarry Place you will discover the stunning gilded watercolours of artist Linda Edwards. There will also be giftware and prints by Sunny Side Art and detailed handwoven textiles by the very talented Helen Foot.

So within a few minutes walk through the town you will find gifts that are both unique and handmade. Take some time to explore the historic gulleys and passages of Shrewsbury, stop at one of the fabulous cafes and take time to enjoy your shopping trip!
