This video was filmed at Wimbledon Art Studios during the 34th Open Studios Art Show in November 2013 by Rob Kelly and John Stewart, from Artistically Speaking.
The Open Studios Art Show takes place twice a year at Wimbledon Art Studios (May and November) and attracts over 4,000 visitors each time. The show is a free-entry event, and the public can purchase art directly from well-established artists who work from their studio in South West London, and discover new emerging talents of all art disciplines (painting, sculpture, photography, illustration, ceramics, screenprinting, mixed-media, etc.)
