We open again in JULY...

Open studios is a rare, annual opportunity for the public to visit the hidden world of local artists in their studios, workshops or pop-up galleries. It is free of charge.

No appointment is necessary to see the artists' work that ranges from small curios, jewellery, glass or ceramics to large sculptures, bronzes and epic landscapes. You can meet the artist, discuss techniques, equipment and discover their inspiration. 

If you have never visited an open studio it can be an exhilarating experience to step into the artist's world.

To make the most of Open Studios:
  • visit artists to see their studio and their work
  • use the maps in the brochure
  • follow the signage to studios 
  • meet the artist and enjoy refreshments
  • check the artist's studio is open before setting off
You can look-up the artist's profiles here on the website. 

Free Brochure

  • Pick up the free brochure from mid-May at local B&Bs, libraries, book shops, cafes, restaurants, framers, garden centers and art shops as well as from artist's studios.

Buying Art 

If you are lucky enough to fall in love with a piece of work, congratulations!  Do talk to the artist about the possibility of taking it home with you straight away. It may only available at the end of the show in which case you would need to arrange to pick it up at the end of the  show. It is important to know that you may need to pay by cheque, cash or by bank transfer as many artists are not set up for retail and most will not have a card facility.
