The Open Studio yesterday at the Lake Erie Screw Factory was

Great!

Around 300 folks strolled through, with the second and third floor studios busy from 2:30 till 9 p.m.! The variety of artists was impressive and the perfect weather added to the high spirits of our guests.

Better late then never, here is a nice article explaining the history of the factory’s Open Studio from ClevelandIndependent.com:

Our open house tomorrow from 3pm to 9pm

in the Lake Erie Screw building (also known as the Templar Industrial Park building) promises to be a blast!

Besides visiting the open studios on floors two and three, shopping for the holidays and snooping around to see how everyone else organizes their space, we’ll have plenty of food, drink and a live band at 8pm on the third floor.

I’ll be working on a few projects….

We hope to see you there!

The Studio in Photos

For those of you who have asked to see what the Great Lakes Decorative Arts Studio looks like, here it is!

The Studio is located in the former Lake Erie Screw Factory in Lakewood, Ohio. It is a 2  minute drive from I90. The wonderful old factory houses over 50 various sized artisan studios. We hold an Open House twice a year, which is when most of these photos were taken. The studio is divided into two areas, the classroom and the work room. I keep the work room private; it is filled with products, works in progress, tools, ladders and anything else you can think of!
