The event will run over the weekend of 8-9 June, and will involve designers, artists and artisans from all over N13, N14 and N21.
The Open Studios team is inviting applications from local creatives who would be interested in taking part. You dont need to have your own studio space to get involved – alternative spaces such as shop windows will be available to to exhibit (so if you are a local shop or business with a window to the world, the organisers would like to hear from you too).
“It would be particularly nice to attract some sculptors – we didnt have any last year”, says organiser Dan Meier.
The weekend is a rare opportunity to put the community in touch with artists, see how they work and buy direct from them. Twenty-eight artists and businesses took part last year, with an art trail around the area with participating businesses, and local eateries running ‘art trail’ menus.
If you would like to take part and exhibit your work, applications are open until 4 January.
