As spring approaches, York Open Studios once again throws open workshop doors across our city for two weekends in April.
Always a popular part of the local arts scene, this event gives you an opportunity to meet artists and view their work in their own homes and studios, all within a ten mile radius of the city. Mediums involved usually include painting, sculpture, printmaking, textiles, jewellery, photography, stained glass, wood-carving, furniture and ceramics.
This year the dates to remember are April 12, 13, 14, 20 and 21. More detail can be found on the official site http://www.yorkopenstudios.co.uk/index.php where you can also download a brochure of events and view a map of venues. Be sure to check their news page for last minute updates and alterations.
Now in its thirteenth year, York Open Studios reflects the strength and diversity of visual arts within the city of York and the surrounding area.
