Explore the hidden corners of York this April when over 100 artists and craftspeople open up their studios as part of the 2017 York Open Studios event. This is a great chance to discover a different side of historic York and take a peek behind the scenes at the workshops of contemporary painters, potters, sculptors, jewellers and more….
• Enjoy Emily Sutton’s exquisite watercolours of shopfronts and interiors and the flora and fauna of Mark Hearld’s exuberant collages and screenprints.
• Printmakers include Alan Coates whose etchings are influenced by old, anonymous photographs and Sally Clarke whose collagraph style reflects early English painting.
• Techniques range from Rosie Scott Massey’s papercuts and the stained glass art of Ann Sotheran, to jewellery designers working in a multitude of materials.
• Ceramic lovers are spoilt for choice this year with renowned studio potters Ruth King, Loretta Braganza and Ben Arnup all opening up their spaces.
See art in the place where it’s made, and take a look into spaces which are rarely open to the public, from town houses and cottage workshops to rustic garden sheds. In all of them you will find the makers themselves ready to show you their work in person.
