Valentines Mansion will re-open to the public on Sunday 15 February with one of our most popular events – Artists Open Studios.

If you’re one of the thousands to have visited previous Open Studio events, you’ll agree they provide a fantastic opportunity to visit what is a normally a private workspace for our local artists and designer makers.

Ranging from ceramic art to fused glass, portraits to photography, a visit to the top floor of the mansion to meet our artists and see how their work is made always a treat.

Time it well and you can also enjoy a special demonstration by Jason Rose creating a picture perfect portrait whilst talking you through techniques and tips to create your own masterpiece. (1pm-2pm, limited spaces).

Something new for 2015, have a go at making your own personalised porcelain tags with ceramic artist Sarah Partridge. Throughout the day, Sarah will be giving you the chance to create your very own piece of art in her studio. Stamp your special message on to the porcelain tags – these would make a fantastic gift for a loved one. Perhaps a special message for your mum for Mother’s Day on the 15th March?*

Make a day of it and take a stroll through our Mind, Body & Soul Fair taking place throughout the ground and first floor at Valentines Mansion. For full details for this event, please visit
