Yesterday I walked around the 20 plus Open Studios in Lady Bay, enjoying the art, the craft, the tea and cakes, and the sunshine. We bought a framed picture from a local photograher (that’s my partner’s June birthday sorted) and saw many things to admire, covert and wish I could buy. The Lady Bay event is one of the largest of these events and one of the longest standing. But if you missed it, you haven’t lost out, there are many more studios open across all of Nottinghamshire – 12 this coming weekend of 24-25 May, from Newark to Mansfield and lots of places in between. Full details and maps are on the Open Studios website. Enjoy!
