Devon Open Studios 10 to 25 September

Devon Open Studios is the annual flagship event of Devon Artist Network

For two weeks every September members of the network, potters, artists, jewellery makers, wood workers, needle workers and creatives of every kind, open their doors and invite people in to discover their work and to chat to the artists themselves about their processes and inspiration. Work is also on sale and it can be a perfect opportunity to purchase unique artwork direct from the maker. 

Registration opens soon for 2022

Visitors
If you are an art lover looking for a great September full of creative and interesting people and places, then a cornucopia of art will be waiting for you across Devon again this year. Over 200 resident artists and crafts people open their studios to show and sell their individual artworks to the public each September. The diversity of studios is always remarkable; you can explore venues ranging from potter’s studios in meadows to medieval barns, sinuous sculpture gardens or garrets by the sea. These hidden havens reveal fascinating work in every medium that allows the opportunity to purchase affordable art, directly from the artist, and without gallery commission.

Venture out on self guided art tours using our free full colour event guide or just by spontaneously following the yellow arrows scattered about the countryside. Meet the artists, participate in workshops and events, or simply create your own journey of discovery in this most spectacular landscape.
