Worcestershire Open Studios – 28-30 August 2021

Artists throw open their studio doors

The doors to art studios across Worcestershire will open wide to the public again, as Worcestershire Open Studios returns over the August bank holiday weekend.

From Saturday 28 August to Monday 30 August, artists at 58 locations across the county will welcome visitors into their studios, galleries and shared spaces to view their work, talk about their creative processes and to buy affordable, locally-made, original artwork.

With 82 artists taking part, there is a wide variety of art on show, including painters, illustrators, photographers, printmakers, textile artists, sculptors and ceramicists.

We can’t wait to welcome visitors back after the event was cancelled in 2020 because of the pandemic. It’s a real highlight of the year for many of our artists and a great, free day out for visitors of all ages.

Each location will have any required Covid-19 measures in place. We know some of our artists are planning to hold their open studios outdoors, so let’s hope for some great weather!
