On Saturday, May 7, Drumalig Studios at Temple, Boardmills, will be offering a special opportunity to experience art in action.

Fifteen artists will be ‘strutting their stuff’ painting pictures, throwing and decorating pots, making jewellery, crafting cards, working with textiles, making glass beads and a lot more.

“I have felt for a while that some people can find art galleries intimidating,” said Felicity, herself a ceramic artist, who is organising the event at her home, which used to be the venue for Temple Auctions.

“As I have the premises – a large car park and outbuildings converted into studios I decided to host an informal occasion involving professional artists where people can come and observe art in the actual making.

“Watching a piece of art emerge is always a magical experience. And, if you have met the artist, the piece can have a special significance. ”

The event will be held at 133 Carryduff Road, Lisburn BT27 6YL from 11am until 6.30pm.
