Open House Hidden Gems

Imaginarium Atelier 

Our jewellery workshop Imaginarium Atelier on the Brunswick Town trail is nestled in a little street on the east side of Brunswick Square, next to the Old Market and The Bottom’s Rest pub. Many are surprised to discover our treasure trove here, but our cozy studio boasts a truly unique atmosphere!

Little Lane Studio on the Dyke Road trail is a little off the beaten track (or lane) – I think people found us a bit hard to find, but it is a real hidden gem. The entrance to the little lane leading to the studio is just off Mill Rise in Westdene – directions are given on the door of the house (Studio is at the bottom) at 63 Bramble Rise.

Studio 87 on the Fiveways trail is a little hard to find. We are on the highest street in Patcham and have a beautiful garden where you can eat tea and cake and admire the metal garden scupture. Stunning view of the South Downs National park. Talk to CPRE Sussex(The Countryside Charity) about local environmental issues.
We have two studios, one in the garden and one on the top of the garden in the house with stunning views  as well as art!

Hygge is nestled away at the end of Withdean Court Avenue – number 23 on the Fiveways trail but set apart from the main hub. Our venue is certainly a hidden gem and worth that extra effort to reach. With a pottery studio set in a wrap around garden and surrounded by trees and lush planting, Hygge is a little haven. We serve homemade cakes and cream teas in the garden and are a venue to easily spend a few hours enjoying. Our open planned house, with bifold doors to the garden, makes it a wonderful and open environment to enjoy the work from our nine artists, makers and designers.
We are a group of local artists and makers at Quebec Workshops in Quebec Street, on the Hanover trail. We are a collection of little workshops tucked away down a twitten,  behind a row of rainbow coloured terraced houses. We are opening our doors to the public to show what we do.
