This is our 'under one roof' 1 day event, gathering makers in one venue in the autumn. 
30 Designer-Makers and Fine Artists showed their work in a Grade ll listed Regency building in Southgate. 
With over 1,500 visitors at each of the last 2 events, the venue was buzzing all day.  


Individual artists, designers and craftspeople open their studios for the weekend and show in local high street venues forming a trail. Our last event had 44 creatives showing in 26 venues with 100’s of visitors over the weekend.
This is an opportunity for the public to buy direct from the makers and try their hand at different crafts where practitioners
are offering workshops and demonstrations.

Retailers taking part benefit from free window displays attracting local shoppers.  We are working to reinvigorate our high streets by creating displays, which become talking points and spread the word about Open Studios.  This collaboration has been very successful, increasing footfall and sales for retailers and drawing more visitors to the event.

If you live or work within walking distance of Southgate Tube or Palmers Green station 
and would like to open your home or studio to show your work over the weekend, join our mailing list via our
contact page and for info on how to apply for future events.
