Other Open Studios around the UK

There are many Open Studio events taking place in England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. All are unique, offering a variety of opportunities for the public and their artists. Individual events can range from a block of studios in a small town, to district and countywide events.

They can be artist-led or local authority-led. They can be a part of a festival, run over a bank holiday weekend, run during the weekends in a month or open during several weeks in a year. Most Open Studio events take place in the summer. Some are biannual and others annual.

Some events are established as an independent organisation where artists join as members and Open Studios is just one part of an organisation’s annual programme. Examples of Open Studios events are Cambridge Open Studios, Dorset Arts Week, Stroud Valley Open Studios and Spring Fling (Dumfries and Galloway Open Studios).
