Paddy Hamilton Studios

Established in 1999, Paddy Hamilton Studios is based in the wild and beautiful region of Dungeness on the Romney Marsh in Kent. The studios - lovely shedlike atmospheres - are run by artists Paddy Hamilton and Helen Gillilan. Both artists have extensive experience of solo and collaborative shows and events, curating and managing exhibitions and producing commissioned work on given themes. The whole site is well worth a long browse but I particularly like the section on what they're working on at the moment. See lots more photos of the sheds and their lovely work (which often features sheds) at Paddy's Flickr site.

  1. Bravo! Thanks for featuring these fine gallery/studio spaces. Helen and Paddy are all about sheds(oh, and the art, of course)!

    How funny - I was there last weekend at their open studio and took similar pictures - but these beat me to it! Do you know the fishermen's "net huts" or sheds at Hastings - including a couple made from boats? If you have not featured them I can send a few snaps. This neck of the world is Shed Central! Along with Applecross in Scotland, of course...

  3. PS Another great shed book, if you don't know it is Handmade Houses: the Woodbutcher's Art - a 70s title full of quirky huts and hippy cabins in the woods of Vermont - one of my all-time favourites.

  4. I love the beach huts at hastings too. So much so I made a page about them - Hastings Net Shops

  5. If only I could get over and visit - reminds me a bit of Birdlings Flat her, minus the rather large 'Station'.

    And of course I'd come with leeches in hand...
