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.
Memberships for 2021 will open at the start of December 2020.
Creating your website account
You can manage your account directly through the website. You will need to create a user name and a password, which will then allow you to update information on your Gallery or Event pages. If you have forgotten your password, there is a password reset function. Create your account.
Summer Art Weeks
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.
The dates for the 2020 Summer Art Weeks were due to be Saturday 20th June to Sunday 5th July. Registration for the Summer event closes each year at the end of January, but you can still join as a member to enjoy the other benefits of our organisation.

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?
