Thank you old and new friends for supporting our open studios yesterday. "KUNST: OFFEN" Offene Ateliers In Berlin Marzahn-Hellersdorf had fun amongst the sporadic rain showers! 'Come again - welcome'!

Alex Roberts studio, in progress

To quote an upbeat, new visitor:
“Inside the Kesselhaus - noch ein Hotspot in der Beilsteiner Straße.
Was Altes, was Blaues, was Neues: Das Atelierhaus KATAPULT/KESSELHAUS bietet den besten Rückzugsort, während gerade der Platzregen Pfützen produziert.
Künstler aus verschiedenen europäischen Ländern haben hier ihre Werkstatt bezogen. Eine Mischung aus stylish, trash und mit super netten Typen! Wir freuen uns sehr über die Entdeckung!
Jessie Keane... mit ihren keramischen Arbeiten.
Alex Roberts mit sehr mystischen Suchbildern nach dem Verborgenen... Sicher nicht das letzte Mal hier gewesen ! Tradtion der Beilsteiner Strasse wird hier weiter geführt...”

“Inside the Kesselhaus - another hotspot … Beilsteiner Street.
Something old, something blue, something new: the Atelier Katapult/Kesselhaus offers the best retreat while the downpour is producing puddles.
Artists from different European countries have sourced their workshop here. A mix of stylish, trash and with super nice guys! We are very happy about the discovery!
Jessie Keane... with her ceramic work.
Alex Roberts with very mystical paintings searching for the hidden... certainly we will come back again! Tradition of Beilsteiner Street is continuing here…”

Contemplating Colour & Collage - new adult workshops at The Charterhouse, London.

Alex Roberts is part of a team providing art workshops at the nation's living community of Brothers, the Charterhouse.

Contemplating Colour and Collage

Thursday 21 June, 10:00 – 15:00

The Charterhouse welcomes you to follow in the footsteps of Patrick Rowe (1917-2013) a professional artist who became a Brother of Charterhouse in 2002. Discover his colourful paper collages before creating your own art work in this hands-on workshop.

This day long workshop will start with an accompanied tour of the Charterhouse and summer blossoming gardens. Participants will be encouraged to visually forage for personal artefacts and findings that stir their imagination. Following this, there will be a practical period to loosely sketch, play with colour and light, before producing a striking collage. The workshop will make introduce and make of both traditional and experimental collage methods.

Your tutor, Alex Roberts, is a British artist and collaborative researcher who curates and educates. Alex lives and works between Berlin and the UK and has a breadth of experience delivering creative workshops to people of all ages and abilities.

All art materials provided. Please bring an apron if desired.
Further information and booking links are available here

The Charterhouse has been living the nation’s history since 1348. In that time it has served as a monastery, private mansion, boys school and an almshouse, which it remains to this day. After opening to the public for just over one year, the Charterhouse has achieved a Gold award in Visit England's Small Visitor Attraction of the Year category.

A hidden gem in the heart of London, steeped in history, now open to the public to share and enjoy creative activities. Sign up for a workshop to learn and experience more.
