Warwickshire Open Studios is a not-for-profit organisation run by volunteers for the benefit of artists and designer makers living or working in/around Warwickshire or Coventry. During 2020 we are planning to hold the Secret Studio Sale on Saturday 25th January (provisional date) and the Warwickshire Open Studios event from 20th June to 5th July. To partake in any of these events you must be a member of Warwickshire Open Studios at a cost of £25 (to be reviewed).
Warwickshire Open Studios membership lasts for one calendar year. It is no longer open for 2019 but will re-open on 1st December.
Additional benefits include an online Gallery page on this website, which you can continue to update throughout the year with new information and images, along with the prestige of being a member of one of the largest Open Studios events in the country and the opportunity to network with like-minded artists.

Secret Studio Sale
This popular event at the start of the year is an opportunity for artists to have a clear out of their workshops/studios and sell off those pieces of work that have been lying around for a while at a discounted price. Or you may have some materials that seemed a must-have at the time but haven't been touched since, so why not get a little bit of money back?
