Shelley Rhodes is having an Open Studio Weekend to celebrate the publication of her new book, Sketchbook Explorations: for Mixed-Media and Textile Artists, on Saturday 29th September to Sunday 30th September.
Many of her sketchbooks and work featured in the book will be on display. Signed copies of the book will be available to buy along with artwork and cards.
Shelley’s mixed media work combines paper, drawings, photographs, prints with fabric and stitch. A central part of her practice is working in sketchbooks, sometimes as preparatory work but often as an end itself. Whenever she travels, she records the journey. Drawings, paintings, collage, words, photographic images and found objects become an integral part of her sketchbooks. She enjoys the freedom and spontaneity that working in sketchbooks brings. She also uses sketchbooks as a place to investigate and develop new ideas for her mixed media work.
In Sketchbook Explorations: for Mixed-Media and Textile Artists, Rhodes explores many different approaches to using sketchbooks, showing examples of her own works as well as examples by highly regarded contributing artists.
When: Saturday 29th September to Sunday 30th September, 10am to 4pm
Where: Hilderstone House, Hilderstone Lane, near Burton in Kendal, LA5 9RR (directions can be found via google maps or email firstname.lastname@example.org)
