Philippa Johnston

Philippa is a magpie maker who works with recycled tin, wire, textiles, paper, mosaic and assorted junk to create quirky colourful pieces. This year’s Open Studios will have a ‘flea market’ feel with lots of dogs, birds and even the odd elephant! There will be a chance to learn about working with tin and, in quieter moments, have a go yourself.
