Front cover of Open Studios 2017 Directory of ArtistsThis publication contains artists’ statements and their opening times, travel directions, details of exhibitions and workshops taking place, together with a handy location map to help you plan your visits throughout West Berkshire and North Hampshire.

What can you expect from a visit to an artist’s studio? They are all different; they can be purpose-built structures or a shed in the garden, some are front rooms, others professional spaces. Some artists join forces and set up group exhibitions of their latest works. What you can be sure of is that artists welcome visitors looking around and asking questions about materials and processes, ideas and experiments. The range of art disciplines is impressive, from sculpture and ceramics, painting on any medium and all kinds of design.

Don’t delay, get your free copy and start planning your arty weekend visits throughout May!

The Open Studios 2017 website went live on Saturday 1 April at 8am. You can view all the information online there. You can also book one of the free hands-on workshops through the website.
