Secret Studio Sale

A firm fixture in the Warwickshire Open Studios calendar, The Secret Studio Sale brightens up the winter with a one-day event offering our artists the chance to clear out their studios and our visitors the chance to snap up artwork at reduced prices!

The 2021 Secret Studio Sale is different...

We may not be able to enjoy the sociable jostle of fellow bargain-hunters in a village hall, but we’re determined to bring you the same fun atmosphere (including CAKE!) in our very first Secret Studio Sale Online Instagram Event – for one day only – on Saturday 27th February.

We’ll showcase 25 WOS artists offering test pieces, end of ranges, old stock, less than perfect art – in fact, all sorts of stuff they’ve been hoarding, at reduced prices. Snap up a lovely painting, pottery, piece of jewellery, textile or glass for a great price. You’re happy because you’ve got a bargain, our artists are happy because they’re clearing the decks for new work! How do you see the art and buy? Follow @secretstudiosale on Instagram or Facebook . You need to follow any participating artists that interest you directly on Instagram because... on the day you can only buy direct from the artist on Instagram.

Our @secretstudiosale Instagram account will flag up what they’ve got for sale, with live interviews and photos of how they’ve set up their stalls, hung their paintings or displayed their work in their studios. Right now, we’re previewing all the artists, their styles and some sneak previews of what they’ve got for sale. And as we get nearer the sale we’ll list FAQs to help you shop.
