Kate Dore, Director of Yorkshire Artspace, says;
“People are fascinated by how things are made and we have a growing desire to own pieces with a local connection and to support local talent. We also love to get a glimpse into these unusual creative spaces and Open Studios is a rare opportunity to do just that.”
Emerging silversmith and jeweler Jen Ricketts who’s based at Persistence Works, says;
“This will be the first Open Studios I have taken part in from my new studio here at Yorkshire Artspace. It’s a great chance to show how much care and attention goes into the work I produce and to demystify the making process. It’s a pleasure to be able to share the results of our hard work with a larger audience.”
