Chiswick ceramicist and activist Carrie Reichardt is opening her studio in the run-up to Christmas as part of a fund-raising campaign in aid of Reel News, a London-based video activist collective. Reel News is helping those bringing footage from Occupy sites around the world.

The studio, at 199, Acton Lane, will be open on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 12-8pm and Sundays 12-6pm until December 21st.

Works on display are by Carrie Reichardt, who uses sustainable materials to give them new life, as well as Teddy Baden, Wreckage, The Dotmasters, The Craftivist Collective, Mutoid Waste Company and many more. The exhibits might encourage people looking for Christmas gifts to shop locally and shop ethnically, she says.

"This is an open studio,not a gallery, so we are donating 10% from all sales to Reel News – a London based video activist collective.
That means the other 90% goes direct to the artist." says Reichardt.

The studio also has Gile's Walkers and Peter Dunne's original 'Cot piece' on display - last seen at Mutate Britain in 2009.
