Hello and welcome!

Polly Raynes

This blog is dedicated to a fantastic Open House.
It all started 30years ago by a man called Ned Hoskins in an area of Brighton called Fiveways.

Chris Brooks

Over the years a few more houses joined in exhibiting work from various artists and makers.

Polly Raynes and Chris Brooks decided to open their house (202 Ditchling Road) to the public and including their gorgeous garden.

Now the Artist Open Houses has expanded across the whole of Brighton & Hove and is held through out the first 4 weekends of May, alongside the Brighton May Festival.

2011 is celebrating 30years of the Open houses and this year 202 Ditchling Road has a sumptuous gathering of art, textiles, jewellery, glass and garden accessories!

Whilst walking around you can enjoy the beautiful work in a delightful house, take tea and rather delicious cakes in the garden with its sculptures and stunning pond!

As the weekends go by, I will try to update the blog with photos and possibly interviews with the artists and makers.

The best bit about an Open House is if you see something you like you can buy it and take it home!

So pop in, say hello....... you know you want to and you know you want some of that CAKE!
