Redlees Studios are located in a three-sided stable block housed over two floors. The interior and layout of the building has been designed to accommodate artists from a wide range of disciplines.
This is a versatile space (13.5m x 6m) used primarily as an exhibition area and for workshops and classes, but also as extra short term studio space, for lecturing, small conferences, meetings and corporate events.
There are 6 studios on the ground floor with a glass kiln in Studio 3 and further kilns in Studio 6 and 7. One of these is reserved for guest resident artists and community project workers.
The First Floor (The Hayloft), has 6 studios; one of which is an IT Suite available for all artists to use.
Twice a year the artists at Redlees Studios open their spaces to the public and showcase their latest work.
The Open Studio events take place over a weekend in the Summer and Winter and start with an evening opening with entertainment and guest speakers.
On display you can see a range of arts and crafts including Fine Art painting, sculpture, design-crafts work in ceramics, textiles, jewellery, fashion accessories, glass and gift items.
The Open Studio events provide a perfect environment to become inspired about art, provide a great opportunity to meet local artists, buy or commission work or just simply an enjoyable day out to view an exhibition and take a look around.
