This year we’re offering some great opportunities to get an early glimpse of the fantastic range of artistic talent that will be on offer later this summer when artists open studios, homes and shared spaces at 81 different locations across the county during Worcestershire Open Studios.

Exhibitions in Malvern and Worcester will showcase work by many of the artists taking part in this year’s open studios weekend. Why not visit these exhibitions to help you plan who to visit over the August bank holiday?
