This website gives you the perfect opportunity to meet our artists and craftspeople through their webpages, view their work, make contact to buy work or find out about workshops and courses, check out exhibitions and events through the calendar, and network to find out more about making and exhibiting on our beautiful Island.

For visitors, our main Open Studios event and Christmas event enables you to see a huge range of work from artists both contemporary and traditional in their own studios or at local venues. Entry to every Open Studio is free and will offer you a warm welcome to view a great range of work including painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, textiles, jewellery and ceramics. When you see the red Open Studios bunting, you know you've arrived!
