1964 - ?

Patrick Ambrose Lewis Heriz-Smith and his wife Audrey Elizabeth Pilkington purchased the Clock House, Bruisyard, Suffolk where from 1964 they converted areas into art studios for local and residential users. From 1979 Audrey and their daughter Bridget Heriz-Smith ran the studios and the facilities were expanded to include an etching workshop, sculpture studio and bronze-casting foundry run by the sculptor Jane Truzzi-Franconi. This maybe the founding of the Clock House Arts Association.
