Norfolk Open Studios

Monday the 23rd May was Stewart's and mine 24th Wedding Anniversary,
so we would celebrate it on the Sunday.
We decided to go round a few Open Studios and have a late lunch out.
First we went to Print Artist, Zelda Eady's at Mattishall.
The Studio photograph is above.
A wonderful studio set in the middle of fields with sheep in them.
In her studio was all her work and wonderful printing and
relief presses. Works of art in their own time.
Zelda's daughter Ellie had made a giant mobile
of a thousand origami Cranes and it hangs from the ceiling
of Zelda's Studio.
( There is a colourful picture of a section of it, above).
Zelda and her husband shared their time and home and we even got
a tour round their garden which was lovely.
It's great to share time with people and what they love.
Then on to Marion Barnett's 'Little Green Shed'.
Marion's location again is a beautiful one.
Her Studio was very atmospheric with music playing and work
Visit her blog at
Then on to Elmham House and 'The Big House Artists',
The artists were in the Stables and The Sculpture Trail,
winded around the gardens.
We then finished with a lovely lunch at The Crown, in Gayton.
See a small selection of the Sculpture above.
