Calling all Wirral artists … Applications for the 2020 Wirral Open Studio Tour are now open!
We would like to invite Wirral based professional and semi-professional fine and applied artists to submit their applications to take part in this year’s Wirral Open Studio Tour.
The 2020 event will take place over the weekend of 13th-14th June and as ever we are aiming to make it the best yet. The open studio weekend is different from any other local arts event, giving visitors the opportunity to see artists in their working environment and to really engage with what they, and their work, are all about. Our visitors tell us that this is one event they really look forward to each year, planning their own ‘tour’ of the studios with great care.
Last year, 65 artists benefited from taking part, welcoming hundreds of visitors from Wirral and surrounding areas and many from further afield into their studios. These artists made sales, accepted new commissions, created valuable contacts and generally found that there is really no substitute for just talking to people about your work.
If you would like to take part this year, please apply using our online form here. The deadline for all submissions is midnight, Sunday 2nd February 2020.
We look forward to hearing from you!
If you have any questions or are wondering whether the event is right for you then please get in touch.
Wirral Open Studio Tour is the event 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?’
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.
