Isle of Wight Arts Open Studios are having their Christmas Fair at Tapnell Farm again, after the success there last year.
Around 20 Open Studios artists will be present, in the Gallery and in the Loft, offering a range of original artworks for sale. There will be fine art in a range of subjects from Island scenes to abstracts, ceramics, glass and silver jewellery, driftwood art, fused glass ware, textiles, and more.
All work is original and will make that unique Christmas gift, available in all price ranges. For that special person, or even yourself!
Meet and talk to the artists and buy direct from them. You may even want to sign up for an art course for the New Year.
Tapnell Farm is easy to get to and parking is plentiful and free. There will be attractions for all the family and a restaurant which offers festive lunches, for which booking is recommended.
In the Farm Park, Mrs Claus will be present, with her husband and elves getting ready for Christmas Day. Children can post a letter to Santa, with a daily service to Lapland.
