Artists 303 News

Hurstbarton Studios

We held a  Workshop on Monday the 8th of October, at the Hurstbarton Studios in Martock. We enjoyed a very productive day and those of us who took part, hope that Artists 303 can meet and work again at the same venue.
It gave us a chance to get to know each other better, to discuss our working practices and to develop ideas for the future.
A big thank you goes to Ann who organised the time and place for us and brought tea coffee and biscuits for sustenance!
A good day in a great space.
