I’m thrilled to be taking part in Camberwell Open Studios on 29 and 30 November.
I’ll be based at Gabriela Szulman’s stylish Camberwell townhouse along with five other independent designer-makers selling stylish fashion, accessories and jewellery, kaleidoscopic cushions and colourful homewares, quirky prints and cards, original collages and recycled textiles that you won’t find on the high street. As well as Gabriela, the other designer-makers are Sarah Hamilton, Cecile Jeffrey, Archie Mac London and Monica Boxley.
There will be regular updates on Facebook so join the event if you’d like to see previews of what will be on sale during the weekend.
The address is 11 Vestry Mews, Vestry Road, London SE5 8NS, and we will be open on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 November, 11am-6pm. Buses 36,436, 12, 171, 345, nearest stop Vestry Road. Nearest train station Denmark Hill (10 minutes’ walk). Free parking on Vestry Road – satnav setting SE5 8NX. Please do not drive into the mews. To access, press button marked “Exit” to the right of the gate.
Also opening their doors to the public are Vanguard Court Studios round the corner, where you can see work by Flux Studios, Robert Cooper, Carina Ciscato, Chris Keenan and Jennifer Levet among others – jewellery, silversmithing, ceramics, sculpture, designer hats and more.
Vanguard Court is at the rear of 36-38 Peckham Road, SE5 8QT and their opening hours are 11 am – 6 pm both days.
Down the road on the opposite side, past Camberwell College, you’ll find theSouth London Gallery where you can whizz through the current exhibition on the way to Number 67, a great little place for food and drink: superb brunches, delicious cakes and evening meals for which booking is essential.
A more pleasing combination of art and refreshments can perhaps be found at coffee shop Daily Goods, 36 Camberwell Church Street, SE5 8QZ, where Orso Major Art will be hosting an exhibition of prints by talented artists John Duffin, Julia Mckenzie and Maria Rivans.
