Each year visitors can buy or commission direct from designers’ studios, workshops or exhibition venues and there is a wide range of products on display (such as fashion, textiles, jewellery, lighting, furniture, ceramics, and glass). There’s also the opportunity to talent spot from the many emerging designers who are taking part in Hidden Art open studios for the first time.

Some of the designers showcasing their work in 2002 include; Kate Storer (bedding), Susse Collection (bags), Always Sky Above (fashion and accessories), Sarah Pulvertaft (jewellery), Helen Rawlinson (lighting), SUCK UK, WAWA (furniture), and Nicola Tassie (ceramics).
