Sandrinetulips200pxHampshire Open Studios, which this year runs from August 19-28, offers the opportunity to visit out of the way artists' studios, galleries, and even people's homes to view and purchase work – including at venues in Bitterne Park, in Southampton, and beyond.

Local artist, teacher and writer Sandrine Maugy, pictured, is hosting an Open Studio at her Bitterne Park home over the bank holiday weekend, and other artists are also exhibiting in and around our area.

Sandrine is a botanical and textile artist as well as a writer. Her first book, Colours of Nature, was published in 2013, and she's published more than 60 articles for Artists & Illustrators magazine.

She says she’ll have lots of new work on show this year in her living room and studio, and will also be showing some of her textile work.

Her studio will be open Friday 25 from 2-7pm, and Saturday 26 to Monday 28 from 11am-6pm at 77 Manor Farm Road, SO18 1NR. Full details are here.


She’s also teaching classes on the Saturday and Sunday afternoon from 2 to 4pm. The cost for workshops is £37 including refreshments and materials, and they’ll be outside if the weather is fine.
