Brentford’s artists’ quarter - Johnson’s Island at the end
of Catherine Wheel Road - is putting on a show of its
resident artists’ work the first weekend of April.
Set among the houseboats of the Grand Union Canal,
the pint-sized island once formed part of Isambard
Brunel’s Brentford Dock.
Now it is home to a vibrant community of artists and
artisans. For most of the year is closed to the public but
over the weekend of 2-3 April the doors will be open and
a wide variety of artistic work will be on display.
If you are an art lover, or looking for a unique gift - and
whether your thing is painting or puppet-making, sculpture
or mosaics, book-binding or bicycle bags - come to
this magical corner of Brentford.
The studios are open from 11-6, Saturday and Sunday April 2nd-3rd.
