Open Studio: Bart Beswick

ANCA Mitchell Studio no. 9, Armour Maker

Bart Beswick clothes his patrons in steel. Wearing protective steel transports you back to the past, where hand production was the norm, and years were spent learning the craft. Bart will give you a glimpse at this tradition with finished pieces to examine or buy, and 15 minute demonstrations of skills and techniques on the hour from 10am – 2pm.

Bart’s studio will be open as part of ANCA Mitchell open studios.
