Open Studios will be taking place around Cornwall from 25th May to 2nd June 2019, welcoming art collectors and admirers into their creative spaces. Some artists will also be running workshops. Look out for the catalogue which lists over 300 artists taking part all over the county, this also gives guidance on how to book workshops, which days and times artists will be open, directions to their studio, whether there is parking, toilets and disabled access.
If you are limited with time but really want to see lots of varieties of art I recommend a visit to Krowji Studios in Redruth. Krowji is a creative hub of practitioners working in paint, ceramics, textiles, design, Printmaking, illustration, glass, jewellery, photography, sculpture and creative sector agencies. It also has a quirky and awesome café. Krowji is a short walk from Redruth train station and busses stop just outside on the main road.
I last took part in the event in 2015 as a tenant of Krowji and it is unfortunate that I cannot take part in Open Studios again this year as I now work from a small studio at my rented home but hopefully I will be able to take part again someday. It’s nice to meet admirers of your work and to be able to sell to them directly and give them a personalised service (and a slice of cake if possible!).
I wish all the best to past colleagues, college friends and studio neighbours taking part this year.
