A team of artists will throw open their studios to the public next month to allow people to see them at work.

Ros Hornbuckle who, with husband Graham, is to show her collection of artworks when she opens up her studio to the public

The Borderland Visual Arts group, based in Oswestry, say it will offer members of the public a chance to view some of their latest work.

Artists Ros Hornbuckle and her husband Graham Mitchell are among the artists who will be showcasing their works next month.

The Open Studios, will run on the weekends of June 10 and 11 and June 17 and 18 from 10am until 5pm.

Visitors can tour 15 studios, free of charge, that will show the work of 30 artists.

Mrs Hornbuckle said: "This will be a fantastic opportunity for the public to see art on display and to meet the artists working in their studios, and we do hope it inspires people in some way.

"I create woven tapestries, mainly of the Welsh coast, which is my favourite coastline and consists of some of my favourite places including Anglesey.

"While my husband Graham is a photographer but also a jewellery maker. His photography is mainly of places we like to walk in the Oswestry area."

New for this year, the Open Studio event will encourage visitors to create their own unique souvenir, by collecting a miniature original print from a hand-cut block at each studio they visit with designs inspired by the location or artwork displayed there.
