Saturday 19th & Sunday 20th March, 10am - 5pm
Join The Biscuit Factory, Chilli Studios, Northern Print, 36 Lime Street, Jim Edwards Studio Gallery and Mushroom Works for the first ever two day Spring Open Studios event! This is a wonderful event for art buyers as well as those just looking for something a little different to do with their weekend.
As always artists will be opening their studio doors and inviting you into their creative worlds. With opportunities to buy direct, watch demonstrations or even take part, Open Studios is a great introduction to art, craft and design. Highlights for the weekend includes etching demonstrations, 20:20 print exchange, an Urban landscape exhibition, fundraising art raffle (with beautiful letterpress tickets) and a pop up cultural market.
Project Director Rachel Brown:
"We're really looking forward to this years event. It's so different from the annual November Open Studios which due to the time of year, has a strong Christmas feel. With the Spring event it's a great opportunity for people to take a little more time out to get involved in a printmaking session, to leisurely watch an artist demonstration or to have a chat with a maker. This laid back feel makes it ideal for the whole family and with lots of activities suitable for children and plenty of options for eating and drinking, it’s a great day out."
Join us in 26th and 27th November 2016 for our usual Winter Open Studios event.
