Derbyshire Open Arts 2017

Derbyshire Open Arts

Saturday 27th May - Sunday 4th June 2017

A FREE Derbyshire-wide event where artists open up their studios to the general public so they can come and meet them, talk to them about their work and see 'behind the scenes'. This year, as well as taking place over the usual Spring May Bank Holiday weekend, some artists will be opening up their studios over the whole week up until Sunday 4th June.

This year, I will be doing a group exhibition with 6 other Glossop artists upstairs at the Oakwood Pub in Glossop. Along with some of the other artists, I will be doing some throwing demonstrations over the weekend. The Oakwood is run by friendly and community orientated staff serve a great selection of beers, hot drinks, and also a small deli-style food menu (and even a Sunday Roast).

There are 4 venues across the Glossopdale area:
