It's that time again!
We are opening up the Studios to showcase the amazing range of arts practice and teaching that takes place within our walls.
Our Open Studios exhibition shows a selection of work donated by studio holders, studio alumni and other supporters to our online fundraising gallery. All the work in this exhibition, along with lots more, has been donated to support the future of the Studios. Work is available to buy over the weekend from the gallery and on-going online via our website.

A full list of the courses we offer is available in our autumn programme and on our website.
