Skipton Open Studios, produced by ArtHouse Jersey and sponsored by Skipton International, sees local Artists open their creative spaces, and pop-up in unusual locations, for the public to visit for free over the last weekend in June and the first weekend in July. 

We bring the public and Artists together to meet, to gain an insight into how and where the work is produced, understanding the inspirations and techniques involved. 

This website acts as a directory of all the Artists taking part, where they can be found and when their studios are open to the public.  Visit the Artist's profiles page to find out more about each artist and their studio location. Each studio is open between 10AM-5PM during the weekends of Saturday 23 - Sunday 24 June, and Saturday 30 June - Sunday 1 July. 

It also contains details of our programme of events and projects taking place alongside the Open Studio weekends. Many of the Artists will be offering workshops at their studio sites, which you can find out details about on our Workshops page.
