This year’s Wirral Open Studio Tour returns with a weekend of creativity and colour on Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 June.
Now in its 12th year of celebrating visual arts across the peninsula, this free event will see 60 artists and makers open the doors to their homes or studios.
The Tour gives visitors an exciting opportunity to access creative spaces not usually open to the public, chat to artists about their processes, and view their work in the environment in which it is created.
There will be a hugely diverse selection of artworks on show, from original paintings, prints, glass and textiles to photography, sculpture, ceramics and jewellery. At each venue you’ll find the artist ready to welcome you and show you around. Much of the work on show will be for sale so you can, if you wish, take away a piece of original artwork to treasure.
Helen Smith, a glass artist and one of the Tour’s volunteer organisers says, “After a challenging couple of years, we are delighted to return to our usual June slot and we are really excited about the line-up for this year’s show.”
All studios are open from 10am-5pm on Saturday 11 June and Sunday 12 June, with some venues also open from 6pm-9pm on Friday 10 June.
