Bristol Doors Open Day 2015

We are taking part in Bristol Doors Open Day this year on Saturday 12th September.

IMG_2665We will be running guided tours all day of our studio building, where you will get the chance to look around a busy artists’ studios and meet some of our studio holders.

Our building, once a carriageworks, has a long and interesting history. So too does the artist collective that now occupies it.

Each of the three floors has a different character and layout, and there are about 40 people working in the building. They range from painters to illustrators, photographers to designers and everything in between. IMG_2661

This is a rare opportunity to see an artists’ studio as it is every day: busy, messy, a bit chaotic and full of new work and ideas.
