Open Studios 2018

Open Studios will be on Saturday November 17th and Sunday November 18th 2018, opening 11am-4pm both days at Persistence Works, Exchange Place Studios and Manor Oaks Studios. Download the virtual leaflet below for maps and more info.

Our annual Open Studios event is your chance to peek behind the scenes in to some of Sheffield's most creative spaces. 125 talented artists and makers will throw open their doors and invite you in to see where they make their work. It’s also your chance to get some art in your home and buy, or commission work directly from the artist. Be inspired by our Get Some Art in Your Home rooms sets in the Persistence Works Gallery.

There will be free early doors making activities, suitable for all ages, both days from 10am-12pm.
