|N22 Open Studios|

20 years strong and it’s still a pleasure to organise the annual Chocolate Factory Open Studios weekend every November. You never know exactly what you’ll get from the fantastic array of Chocolate Factory Artists, but you can be sure that there’s something to suit all tastes.
The range of Chocolate Factory Artists has certainly not diminished. There are painters galore, naturally, some working in oil, others in acrylics or watercolours, or all three. There are sculptors, ceramists, designer-makers, textile artists, etchers, illustrators, and, of course, those imaginative types who can fit in all the brackets or none. Another particular treat from the two previous Open Studios was the introduction of scheduled musical performances taking place at regular intermissions throughout the event. Something of a departure from the usual visual arts on offer, Liz Chi Yen Liew’s beautiful piano playing, courtesy of Stella Polaris Studios, was nothing short of lovely, and a refreshing moment of calm in what is always a bustling weekend with an extraordinary amount to see, buy, or even just experience.
The Open Studios weekend is on: Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th November 2016, 12 noon-6pm
Private View: Friday 11th November (6-9pm)

|The Chocolate Factories in Wood Green, London N22, are a landmark development and hub of excellence for the creative industries in the UK.|
The project started in 1996 when Collage Arts, an arts development agency, moved into the Chocolate Factory on Clarendon Road and converted several derelict floors of the Factory into artist studios.
What followed was a high demand for creative space and in 2002, Collage Arts renovated Chocolate Factory 2 on Coburg Road, next door.
