In a earlier post we mentioned that The Brighton Festival has come to town, bringing naughtiness, music, ladyboys, comedy and plenty of art. One of the unique parts of the festival is the Open houses that spring up all over Brighton and Hove and not wanting to miss a trick we headed on down to our local Open house just on the outskirts of town, 2 Knoyle Road.
The house is full of art from screen printing, ceramics, textiles to jewellery and is brought to you by 5 sisters exhibiting art from inspirational artists and craftspeople from Brighton and beyond.
With different art spread around the house, and the chance to 'shop' in a different surrounding was such an eye opener. There was even cake to be eaten.
After debating whether to purchase a new print for the hall, and admiring the handmade jewellery we eventually left empty handed, but with a new insight into how the Open Houses work. I urge you to find one local to you and pop down throughout the month of may.
Knoyle House is open every weekend in May, but to find others in your area head on over here
Thanks for having us ladies.
