Artists Open Studios & Group Shows

Visiting Open Studios is the ideal way to enjoy both the eclectic range of art created in the Isle of Purbeck and meeting the creators. Our artists are looking forward to welcoming you into their studios and giving you some insights into how they work. There is a wonderful array of Open Studios this year – you’ll find painting, printmaking , photography, ceramics, sculpture, glass work and much, much more. Look out for the yellow and blue PAW Open Studio direction signs – or use this site to plan a trail around your tastes, mode of travel or timescale. Alternatively turn to the helpful map in middle of this brochure. Entry to all studios is free.

You may like to take your cheque book with you just in case temptation strikes. Some Open Studios have card machines but not all. Or you can secure your latest art related purchase by paying a deposit. Please remember that all studios and exhibitions are work environments and are likely to have hazards such as uneven surfaces, sharp tools etc. Visitors must take great care. The trustees cannot accept liability for loss, injury or damage.
