The Sorting Office designer-maker studios in Eastleigh will be opening its doors to the public on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th of June for its annual Summer Open Studios event.
The weekend is a chance for visitors to browse the vibrant studio spaces and buy an exquisite array of wares, expertly hand-crafted by local designer-makers.
The studios’ 17 resident designer-makers will be on hand to welcome visitors, talk about their crafts and show off their work.
A selection of local artists and makers will also be setting up shop in the studios’ Production House for the event’s popular Maker’s Fair, whilst a number of artisanal food and coffee stalls outside on the forecourt will be there provide refreshments.
The event’s Saturday opening also coincides with Eastleigh Unwrapped, making for a lively day of festivities in the town centre.
Summer Open Studios, running from 11am-5pm, is a free event and anyone is welcome to attend.
