Details

Studio groups, individual artists and craftspeople in Colchester and the surrounding areas open their doors to allow the public a chance to visit their studios. Open times vary for each artist, so please double-check the brochure or website before you visit.

This established annual event encompasses the historic town of Colchester and the surrounding areas that fall within the CO postcode district, from Halstead to Harwich.

Both studio groups and individual artists and craftspeople open their doors to allow the public a chance to visit their studios.

This is your chance to talk to artists about art, see the way they work and perhaps discuss techniques. Combined with this you also have the opportunity to purchase original artworks directly from the artist or commission that specific piece you have been looking for

Open times vary for each artist, so please make sure you double-check the brochure or website before you visit.

Make a Day of it …... Have a walk along the coast at Harwich, or visit the Castle in Colchester town.
