Calling all Wirral artists … Applications for the 2019 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 2019 event will take place over the weekend of 8th-9th June. This will be the 10th time the Wirral Open Studio Tour has run so of course we are aiming to make it the best yet! We are very grateful to Micheline Robinson for starting it off all those years ago. 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, nearly 70 artists benefited from taking part in the Tour, welcoming hundreds of visitors from across the Wirral and surrounding areas into their studios, workshops and display spaces, making sales, accepting new commissions and creating valuable contacts. If you would like to take part this year, please apply using our online form here. The deadline for all submissions is midnight, Sunday 3rd February 2019.
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.
