This year’s event took place from 3rd – 19th June 2016. Thanks to all our participants and visitors for making our 20th Anniversary event such a great success!

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.
