Just a mini-blog today to tell you all about the opening of Artison last weekend.
As you will recall from the last blog, Artison is an exciting new venture just outside of Masham where anyone with a desire for creativity and a passion for learning can gather some new artistic skills. In other words, within the tranquil settings of High Burton, Masham, artists and crafts makers will be running day courses on a variety of diciplines; from Weaving to Printmaking, Ceramics to Silver-clay. Every course will include a delicious lunch and regular coffee and biscuit breaks. These courses are designed for complete beginners and those with more artistic experience, so really EVERYONE can join in.
Last weekend, on a slightly blustery August bank holiday, Artison opened it’s doors to the public for the first time – a chance for the curious amongst us to get a look at the premises, meet some of the tutors and most importantly enjoy a variety of cakes. Below you can see what went on, and how amazing the studios look!
