Photo by Neil Pledger.Events over 6 weeks in May & early June were an opportunity to meet artists & makers and discover their work, often with demonstrations & other activities as part of the experience. Many offered refreshments or were near to one or more of Nottinghamshire’s wide range of café’s & pubs. With over 250 artists to meet at 64 venues, events took the form of:

  • Working Studios – individual artists opening their studio spaces.
  • Temporary workspaces in accessible venues – with small groups of artists demonstrating aspects of their practices.
  • Larger festival events.
