Open Studios Cornwall is well established as Cornwall’s accessible yet unusual art experience, the event takes families, art enthusiasts, keen shoppers or anyone with an interest in the arts on a journey through the Cornish art scene - for many opening the world of art for the very first time. Taking visitors on a tour of unseen Cornwall, into remote cottages and chapels, beach side studios and historic buildings, often far from the tourist trail, Open Studios Cornwall offers something truly unique.

Many of the studios are family friendly and offer beautiful gardens and locations to keep the kids busy whilst parents quiz the artist on a particular technique they use. The event also gives visitors the rare chance to attend one-on-one workshops with the artists and learn specialist techniques in a variety of disciplines from painting to jewellery making.

Scattered throughout the county people can choose and plan day trips around visiting artists or locations depending on their interests. From experiences such as chatting with nationally acclaimed sculptors about their inspiration to learning how to make jewellery in quirky workshops, there will be an Open Studio to explore wherever your base may be.

Below are some artists who participated in the 2014 Open Studios event
