Artison is unleashed on the dales!

Hi Everyone,

Just a mini-blog today to tell you all about the opening of Artison last weekend.

Founders Scott, Sue, Gaynor and Josie (The Gallery’s owner)demonstrating how to hold a sign up with your own head.

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!

  1. I recently discovered your blog/website and have really enjoyed reading this and some of one’s other posts. I thought I’d dive out in the shadows and leave my first comment. I am not sure what to say other than I’ve enjoyed reading and will continue to visit as often as I can.
