Over twenty studios in this idyllic setting will open their doors to offer an insight into the creative process and a chance to see the amazing diversity of talent and skills that are nurtured here at Parndon Mill.
In addition to the fine arts of drawing, painting and sculpture, these include craftwork in glass blowing, glass fusion, stained glass, textiles, calligraphy, ceramics, stone letter carving, jewellery and printing.
At the event, artists . craftspeople and designers will be present to discuss their work and showcase their techniques. Visitors will also have the chance to try their hand at some of the crafts.
Parndon Mill can be found in the Northwestern corner of Harlow along the River Stort.
Parndon Mill is looking very smart, thanks to the efforts of Raytheon, who gave 500 hours of volunteer time to paint buildings, gates and bridges!
