Somerset Art Works Open Studios
In one of the largest Open Studios events to date, Somerset Open Studios 2021 presents work from more than 300 Somerset Art Works Members in over 200 studios and spaces across the county this autumn. Visitors have the opportunity to go behind the scenes and experience the working process, meet the artist and find out what inspires them- engaging with creativity at the source. Studios occur in a variety of unique situations and the event is the perfect opportunity to discover hidden locations and workspaces.
This year, there is an increased focus on improving access for visitors- information is available in a range of formats and artists are doing their best to ask if they can help to make access easier to venues. QR codes will help visitors locate information easily- just scan the codes where you see them to take you to the App or to the Open Studios page on the website.The Open Studios page will contain full information about Open Studios including the event programme with workshops, talks, films and have-a-go activities listed. Every weekend is Family Friendly Weekend with a range of activities suitable for families of all shapes and sizes!
