Brighton Artists Open Houses May 2016 Festival
We’re excited for the return of the May Artists Open Houses Festival which will run weekends from 30th April – 30th May 2016.
Not visited before? This is what to expect.
Twice a year artists and makers open their houses and studios, providing art lovers the chance to browse and buy original artwork direct from the artist. With a focus on quality and value for money, the Artists Open Houses festival aims to bring a dynamic mix of arts and crafts to the widest possible audience, providing visitors and viewers with engaging and inspiring experiences.
Visitors can expect to see a wide range of art including jewellery, ceramics and textiles, paintings, sculpture, printmaking, photography and many other media whilst also having the opportunity to chat directly with the artists. The Artists Open Houses festival is free for visitors and open to everyone.
There are lots of different trails to explore across the city including Hannover, Kemp Town, Fiveways and more. Trials even reach as far as Ditchling!
