Cancelled in 2020 due to COVID-19, the popular Wirral Open Studio Tour is set to return on Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 September, 2021.
Now in its 11th year of celebrating visual arts across the peninsula, this free event will see around 70 artists and makers open the doors to their houses or studio spaces. The Tour gives visitors an exciting opportunity to talk first-hand to the artists and to view their work in the environment in which it is created, or to just enjoy wandering through the various studios to answer that eternal question ‘What do artists do all day?’.
There will be a hugely diverse selection of artworks on show, from original paintings, prints, glass and textiles to photography, sculpture, ceramics and jewellery.
Helen Smith, a glass artist and one of the Tour’s volunteer organisers says, “It’s been a tough year for many artists and self-employed creatives and we are really excited about the line-up for this year’s show, which is bursting with colour and creativity.”
Studios will be open from 10am-5pm on Saturday 11 September and Sunday 12 September.
