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. A particular treat from the 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.
