A Final Word on York Open Studios 2016

A quick note from Julie Lightburn on this years's event.

"It was lovely to see so many friends and fellow artists, and to meet lots of new people, during York Open Studios.

Thank you to everyone who helped raise over £65 for the British Heart Foundation, Dean's Garden Centres charity of the year.

Sorry, eaten all the cake, but the Poppy Bookmarks are still available at the Garden Centre, Stockton-on-the-Forest."

Julie Lightburn

.... and for those who like to plan ahead, next year's York Open Studios are scheduled for the weekends of  21st/22nd/23rd and 29th/30th April 2017.
