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.
The next event will take place on 5th - 21st June 2015

SEOS Guide

The next SEOS Event will take place on 5th - 21st June 2015. A wide range of work will be on show from traditional oil and watercolours to ceramics, textiles and fine metalwork. The event will be free to the public and a full colour guide will be published and distributed throughout the SEOS area in May. It will include a description of each artist's work with contact details, travel directions and maps. It will also be available on our website. The 2014 guide is still available online as a flip book or in PDF format from our downloads page
