Forthcoming Events at the IoWSG Arreton Studio
Saturday July 12th 2014 - Richard Golding/Timothy Harris ‘Hot Stuff’ Collaboration Day No 2. All welcome.
Another great opportunity to witness these two talented and innovative glassmakers working together. Timothy and Richard were students together many years ago and at the last collaboration day in March watching them working together was hugely enjoyable. Start time 10.00am.
September 13th/14th (Sat-Sun) – IoWSG Arreton Studio Launch Weekend – All welcome
Our ‘official’ opening – only 6 months late! Entry to the actual ‘tape cutting’ on Friday evening will be by invitation only, but for the rest of the weekend everyone is welcome. A good opportunity to see the new studio and what we have been doing.
Sunday October 19th – Our first Collectors Studio Day. (IoWSG/Artius Collectors Only)
The first of what we expect to be a regular series of get-togethers at the new studio for IoWSG/Artius Collectors. This will be a very special opportunity for us to welcome collectors into our new home. The day will consist of talks and demonstrations, culminating in Timothy making the Day Piece – a highly collectable unique design with restricted availability. More details to follow.
