There has been quite a buzz about the usually rather sleepy Clerkenwell this week thanks to the three day design event Clerkenwell Design Week. 

As far as we can tell there has been a huge boost in interest and visitor numbers since the event launched in May 2010 and hopefully this will grow in future years and continue to promote the area as a key destination for viewing, exhibiting and purchasing contemporary design.

It's also been largely responsible for the impressive influx of visitors to Marsden Woo to see the brilliant exhibitions we are currently showing: Pots - Plates - Chairs by Martin Smith (main gallery) and The Wire and Other Works by Stephenie Bergman (Marsden Woo Project Space).

Hopefully the avid visitors won't be put off by the pouring rain for the last day of the festival today...

We've now added a whole new section to the 'Artists' part of our website. It includes images and other information about some of the other fantastic artists and designers who have exhibited with us both in the main gallery and our downstairs Project Space, but are not part of our gallery stable. 

Currently, the featured artists are; Tord Boontje, Owen Bullett, James Evans, Tom Foulsham, Tony Hayward, Bryan Illsley, Jim Partridge, Alida Sayer and Philip Sayer.

Some studio shots taken at the studio of Gordon Baldwin as he prepares for his upcoming solo show with us this June 23rd - July 30th. Baldwin speaks of the show, titled 'Dark Water and Boulders Shouting';

'...this work is a continuation of my journey, new pieces developing from old memories. I am surprised and pleased with the way this new work has turned out; the water vessels probed deeply into my past'
