York Open Studios

York Open Studios 2020

Take a peek into the creative spaces of York’s artists, makers and designers this Spring when they open up their studios for free as part of the York Open Studios event.

See art in the place where it’s made and discover spaces rarely open to the public, from town houses and cottage workshops to rustic garden sheds. In all of them you will find the makers themselves ready to show you their work in person.

Discover hidden parts of York, from historic streets, to leafy suburbs and country cottages whilst tracking down studios of all shapes and sizes packed full of pottery, paintings, prints, textiles, jewellery, furniture and much more!

Add personality to your home interior with a piece of ceramics, sculpture or artwork with this being a chance to buy art directly from the artist. Perhaps commission a piece of jewellery or try your hand at something new with many opportunities to ‘have a go’.

With 144 artists taking part and 97 studios to visit there is something to interest everyone!

York Open Studios takes place on Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 and Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 April 2020 with studios open 10am-5pm. For full details and maps of all the studios visit and for a free copy of the event programme please register online or email
