How to Visit Our 2020 Artists

Our artists are excited to invite you into our studios to show you how we work and what we have been creating over the past 12 months. To help us give you a safe and fun art tour experience we have a selection of studios offering tours in 4 new formats. Here's what the options mean, and how you can enjoy our tour.

If you are signed up to visit one of our studios but find that you have been in contact with anyone showing Covid-19 symptoms, or if you are displaying symptoms of Covid-19, please contact the artist to cancel your tour. Our artists will happily arrange for you to visit their studio another time to see their work.

Option 1 - Virtual Tour

Almost all of our 2020 artists will be offering a digital tour of their studio for everyone to enjoy. Our virtual tours will be accessible within our exciting new digital brochure and on this website in September. Each virtual tour is unique and gives you insights into the artist's personality, the techniques they use to create their work, examples of their artwork, and a peak inside their studios.

If you are reading this before September, be sure to come back again soon to discover our new digital brochure, and this years exciting virtual tours!
