Carshalton Artists Open Studios will, in 2019 celebrate the work of Carshalton Arts and Crafts artist, Frank Dickinson. Dickinson built and then made the stunning interiors of the grade 2 listed Little Holland House. Sutton Museums and Heritage will collaborate with CAOS and will open Little Holland House for all four days of the CAOS festival.
In 2018 CAOS celebrated the work of Pauline Boty, with three schools joining CAOS artists in producing nearly 300 works of A5 artwork, inspired by Boty and displayed in businesses across Carshalton. Carshalton Artists plan on doing the same with Dickinson in 2019.
We are participating in this major local event. See paintings from the Museum Collection, create your own masterpiece and have it displayed at Honeywood.
Free, drop in.
Saturday 22 to Sunday 29 June (during opening hours)

A Friends of Honeywood Museum Event
To celebrate Black History Month the Friends of Honeywood Museum bring you an evening of jazz originally played by the Greats to illustrate the huge contribution that Black musicians made to the jazz era.
Enrico Tomasso enjoys a well-earned international reputation, including best trumpet category winner in the 2018 British Jazz Awards. Age seven he met and played for Louis Armstrong, resulting in a life-long friendship.
‘It is a mark of true distinction when a jazz trumpeter plays with such fluency and apparent ease that you listen to the music and not the technique’ (Dave Gelly, The Observer).
Alongside Enrico is very skilled and knowledgeable pianist Hugh Crozier. ‘Nothing could ever muddy up the pianist’s vibrant solos’. (Jazz Review).
Tickets £10 (Friends £8) include a glass of wine and nibbles.
Please ‘phone 020 8642 4778 to book.
