You are warmly invited to our annual Open Studios event across our two studio complexes in Sheffield city centre. This is an opportunity for you to visit artists' studios and buy work direct from the makers. Home to over 160 painters, ceramicists, jewellers, metalsmiths, designers, woodworkers and more, there's something for everyone at Yorkshire Artspace!

At Persistence Works, we'll be running free arts activities to mark 20 years since its construction as the first purpose-built artist's studios in the UK. Meanwhile at Exchange Place, we'll be showcasing paintings, drawings and prints made by some of our talented artists. Hot drinks will be served at both buildings by local cafés and visitors of all ages are welcome.

We are working hard to ensure the event is safe and have split each day into AM and PM sessions to limit numbers so that you can enjoy your visit safely and comfortably. You are welcome to wear a mask in our buildings and we will provide hand sanitiser.

Please book a free ticket to ensure you are able to attend, as without a booking you may need to queue outside. You can arrive at any time within your chosen session.
