Open Studios – What is it?
The bi-annual SFSA Open Studios are the highlight of the arts organisations calendar, a 2 day art, craft and design show. It’s the perfect event for SFSA’s membership and vibrant hub of over 450 artists, printmakers, craft makers and designers to showcase their individual practices, by opening their studio doors and exhibit their works of art, craft and design for the public to view and also buy directly from the artists and makers commission-free. It also allows for a great platform for networking and wider community engagement for all the family…
A wide variety of work available across many disciplines and practises including: Architecture, Bookbinding, Cabinetmaking, Ceramics, Clockmaking, Digital, Drawing, Fashion & Accessories, Fine Art, Furniture Design, Garden Design, Glass, Illustration, Jewellery & Silversmithing, Moving Image, Photography, Painting, Printmaking, Sculpture, Textiles & Costume and Writing - there is certainly something of interest for everyone…
