About the Tour

The Wirral Open Studio Tour is an annual event taking place in June each year, in which local artists invite the public to visit their studios, workshops and display spaces. It is an excellent opportunity to talk first-hand to the artists and to view their work in the environment in which it was created, or to just enjoy exploring the various venues attempting to answer that eternal question ‘What do artists do all day?’

The tour was initially set up in 2009 in the Hoylake/Meols area by Canadian artist Micheline Robinson as ‘Artists in Our Midst’ and quickly evolved into a Wirral-wide event. It continues to grow year on year, with over 80 artists participating in 2023.

Our artists work in a variety of disciplines including painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, glass, textiles and jewellery; so whatever you’re interested in there will be something for you.
