York Open Studios 2018
Various venues in the York area | Free entry
Over 100 artists and makers invite you to see behind the scenes when they open up their studios this April.
Explore the creative spaces of furniture makers, painters, potters, sculptors, jewellers and lots more makers in and around York, North Yorkshire at this popular free event.
See art in the place where it’s made and discover spaces rarely open to the public, from town houses and cottage workshops to rustic garden sheds. In all of them you will find the makers themselves ready to show you their work in person.
New artists include Iain Will, whose paintings have been exhibited at York Art Gallery; also new to the event is printmaker Michelle Hughes whose linocut prints are inspired by nature and the great British countryside. Other printmakers include Dan Howden, recipient of the Anthony Dawson Young Printmaker of the year award and Gerard Hobson with his beautifully designed images of nature and wild animals.
This is a fantastic chance to see original artworks, perhaps commission a bespoke item for you and your home, trigger a new interest or simply enjoy a day out with a difference!
