Christmas Open Studios in November and December 2013

Chocolate Factory Summer Open Studios 2013

Chocolate Factory Summer Open Studios 2013

In the lead up to Christmas designers and makers studios and small designer shops are opening up. In the past Hidden Art has organized every year the Hidden Art Open Studios Fair and has also coordinated and promoted individual studios and studio complexes opening up.

From the moment that we have stopped doing this because of lack of funding I have found it really difficult to get my head round who is opening up when. And in some cases I would miss an Open Studios that I really wanted to see.

So here is a list of Studios opening up. You can find more details on their own website and where a link has been provided.

Some studios are outside of London, but most are in London. They are organized by area and date. If you are opening up your studio and are not included, let us know and we will add you to the list.
