We were in St. Albans, UK, in September 2010, round about the time that art open studios take place. We have already covered a few artists and musicians that took part in the open studios, on this website; Erica Roch, King Alfred’s Cakes to name a few.

One of the art studios we attended was the Art Symphony 2010. If you click on the Art Symphony 2010 website you can view mini bios of each artist, so we will not go into them.  We have a video to share with you of their work, a standing testimony that handcrafted work rocks.

Karen Davies – Stained Glass

Claudia Brown – Perspex Sculptures

Elspeth Hector – Hand knits

Anneli Boon – Contemporary artwork and mixed media ‘paper’ artist

Fire & Clay – Japanese inspired ceramics

Steph Littlechild – Mixed media artist

Erica Roch – Textiles and mixed media artist

Jonathan Mitchell – Visual paintings and prints

Some are members of the Hertfordshire Visual Arts Forum. So if you live in Hertfordshire, UK, HVAF may be the place for you to find like minded artisans and artists.

Here’s the mini-video podcast!

And here questions of type such if honestly strike me not much as I wrote everything higher. It is visible you simply you don’t want to read all this. As my parrot does.
