Every year dozens of North Yorkshire artists open their studio doors to let you take a peek inside their creative spaces. I took a little time this Sunday to visit one of the studios which opens it's doors for this annual event.
Hidden away in a side street, just off Skipton High Street is the studio of 'Jaki Bogg, Textile Artist'. It is a lovely light, bright space full of interesting bits and bobs.
These are just some of the lovely things on offer:
Very cute bunnys!
I loved this peg idea
I am going to test it out in place of plastic Fair Isle fish. They should work well for DK but may be a bit heavy for really light yarns!
Lovely hand stitches cards.
Hand spun yarns, often made with hand-dyed wool. This is going to be mixed with a complimentary sock yarn for a simple Fair Isle sock pattern I am working on.
A lovely little bag of goodies and ideas, for just a few pounds.
Jaki also runs workshops so check her out at 'jakibogg.webart.com'.
I can highly recommend this event. It runs over 2 weekends in June every year, with new artists opening each year. Just do a little research before you go as often several studios try to open in the same place to give you more than one place to visit in a small area. The studios are all very different, so you never know, you may get inspired to make your own creative space.
