Bringing together artists both up-and-coming and established, the event sees nearly 200 creatives open their studio doors and offers a rare opportunity to explore behind the scenes and meet the makers.

The diverse talents of artists working at Krowji, Cornwall’s largest creative community will be on display once more as part of Open Studios Cornwall between Saturday 28th May and Sunday 5th June 2016.

Almost 50 artists and designer-makers at Krowji add a range talents of from painting to photography to the already impressive Open Studios Cornwall portfolio. Visitors of all ages will be welcomed to the site between 10am and 5pm over the course of the event, although they are encouraged to consult the Open Studios brochure to verify individual studio opening times.
