The next event will take place 3rd – 19th June 2016.

Every year in June, artists and craftspeople across south east England open their doors to the public. It is a unique opportunity to meet, talk to and see them at work as part of the South East Open Studios event.

SEOS Guide 2016
The last SEOS Event took place on 5th – 21st June 2015 with over 300 artists and craftspeople taking part. A wide range of work was on show from traditional oil and watercolours to ceramics, textiles and fine metalwork. As usual, the event was free to the public and a full colour guide was published and distributed throughout the SEOS area in May. It included a description of each artist’s work with contact details, travel directions and maps. The new guide for 2016’s event is available as a flip book and in PDF format on the downloads page. The next event will take place 3rd – 19th June 2016.
