Warwickshire Open Studios

This summer, we are part of Warwickshire Open Studios, showcasing artwork from across our projects alongside local artists. This is an opportunity to visit our stunning home in the centre of Stratford upon Avon; view our inspiring exhibition, recently commissioned works and have a coffee & cake in the tearoom. We are running several of our popular multi media workshops during the event, some free of charge; details of how to learn or develop a skill are available online or by contacting us directly.
