Open Studios will feature 85 artists across the district for our 22nd annual Open Studios event - we hope we can make this one even more enticing and exciting to hundreds of new and regular visitors. You will be able to pick up an Open Studios Directory from beginning of April from SVA, tourist information, shops and cafes in Stroud so you can plan ahead. The Open Studios Weekend is a great way to meet artists, find out more about the ideas behind their work and the techniques they use. Don’t forget, you can also buy art works directly from Open Studios artists too! SVA has been hosting Open Studios since 1997 with a handful of artists and it has now expanded into one the best rurally based Open Studios events in the UK.
