Bath Open Studios: Bear Flat Artists Open Studios
25th May – 27th May
The city’s popular arts trails return in May and June, so plan ahead to visit open studios in different parts of the city at the weekends. In total, more than 180 artists and makers will open their doors to the public to showcase original artwork, give demonstrations or offer workshops.
It’s an opportunity to discover the wide range of art and craft being created here, meet artists and makers, talk about their ideas or just enjoy browsing. You might even buy a piece of original art at an affordable price, or feel inspired to take up a new creative activity.
With painting, printmaking, photography and sculpture on show as well as glass, jewellery, ceramics and textile art, there’s something for all tastes.
Each trail has its own individual style but all share a relaxed and friendly welcome. It’s a great way to spend a day or the whole weekend, exploring a different neighbourhood, on your own, with friends or as a family.
Whether you’re walking or driving, the routes are manageable and refreshments are provided at pubs, cafés and some artist venues.
Dates of the events are:
4–6 May – Larkhall Open Studios
11–12 May – Newbridge Arts Trail
25–27 May – Bear Flat Artists Open Studios
22–23 June – Widcombe Art Trail
