This year you will be able to see the majority of my work being shown as part of West Berkshire and North Hampshire Open Studios in the studio belonging to Amanda Siegert, glass artist, located in Pamber End, Tadley, Hampshire in May 2016.
We will also both have work on show in the INSIGHT exhibition at Greenham Common and as part of the Life and Light exhibition at Sherfield Park Community Centre. More information about these exhibitions can be found below.
Amanda's studio and a picture of a section of a piece of her work
WBNH Open Studios starts on Saturday 30th April this year which will be our first open day open to the public. Our "Open Studios" open times are as follows:
Amanda's studio is a very much a working studio where you will be able to see her working on a variety of glass pieces. Amanda makes and restores leaded windows, creates copper foiled panels, 3 dimensional objects and fused glass is used to create beautiful pieces of art and jewellery. Amanda also teaches from her studio too.
If you would like to come to see our work but are unable to come during any of the above times it will be possible to visit by appointment.

Life and Light
Amanda and I will also be taking part in the Life & Light exhibition which will take place from 30 April until 22 May at the Sherfield Park Community Centre.
The exhibition will show pieces of work in a large range of materials made by 10 artists who will be taking part in Open Studios 2016 and are all located in the North Basingstoke area.
Entry is free and the Centre is open Monday to Friday from 9am until 5pm. If you would like to visit outside these hours access can be arranged by emailing Jayne Perkins ([email protected]).
More information about the Life & Light exhibition and the artists taking part can be found on the website.
Directions to the Community Centre can be found here.
A trail map which takes in all the artists has been created to allow visitors to easily take in several studios in one day. The map can be found here.
The INSIGHT exhibition acts as a taster show with a couple of pieces of work from every artist taking part in WBNH Open Studios. There will be a huge range of disciplines on show here including painting, photography, sculpture, textiles, ceramics, woodwork, glass and printmaking. You will be able to collect a directory from the exhibition which will show you where all the artists are located and when they are open. This exhibition is based in the New Greenham Arts Centre, it is open every day from 30 April until 22 May, 11am until 5pm with late opening on a Thursday evening - open until 8pm. Entry is free.
