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. At the beginning of 2020 we held the successful Secret Studio Sale. The world since then has been turned upside down and so unfortunately we have had to cancel the Warwickshire Open Studios Summer Art Weeks due to be held from 20th June to 5th July, and delay our 2020 Retrospective exhibition at the Leamington Spa Museum and Gallery to 2021.
Warwickshire Open Studios membership lasts for one calendar year.
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.

The Summer Art Weeks is our main event, during which artists and designer makers open their studio doors or hold pop-up exhibitions across the area. Participants must be over 18 years old for formal educational establishments and minors groups, the leader must be aged 18 years or over.
Following what happened in 2020 and how successful it was, we will also be running the virtual #artweeksfromhome alongside the Summer Art Weeks.
The dates for the 2021 Summer Art Weeks and virtual #artweeksfromhome are Saturday 19th June to Sunday 4th July.

Secret Studio Sale
Unfortunately, we have taken the decision to cancel the Secret Studio Sale for 2021, which was due to take place at the end of January. We felt that the very nature of the event, with the bustling atmosphere and throngs of people looking for that special bargain, that this event cannot currently be held within the recommneded safe guidelines. We are currently looking into the possibility of a virtual event later in the year. If this is not possible, never fear, we will be back in 2022!
