Open Studios

The next event is Open Studios Cornwall 2019:

Saturday 25th May 2019-

Sunday 2nd June 2019

More details here!


Twice a year the public are invited to Krowji for a look inside the studios based here. These events are called Open Studios.

This is a great opportunity to have a look at the studio spaces Krowji provides and see how the artists and makers make use of them. Satisfy your curiosity or scope out your own future studio space!

These events are also a great way to purchase artwork, jewellery, textiles or even tables directly from the people that made them, cutting out the middle man. Find out how the artist makes their work and the stories behind it. Have your own ideas? Talk to the artists about commissioning pieces.

Leave plenty of time for your visit, upwards of 50 Krowji tenants have been known to take part in these events and it can take the best part of a day to see them all. Thankfully there’s plenty of signage and lots of maps around the site.

In the summer a number of artists at Krowji take part in the Cornwall-wide event ‘Open Studios Cornwall’ which always takes place around the last May bank holiday and lasts for nine days.

Open Studios Cornwall allows artists from all over Cornwall to open their studios at the same time and benefit from being represented in the popular Open Studios catalogue. You may have noticed the orange ‘O’s that appear every May that signpost to a nearby open studio.

Check the Open Studios Cornwall website for event dates and more information about the other artists you can visit in Cornwall.

In December artists and makers at Krowji host their own Open Studios Event – Krowji Christmas Open Studios, which always takes place on the first weekend in December.

Christmas Open Studios begins as an evening event on the Friday night and continues throughout the daytime on Saturday and Sunday.

Capture the Christmas spirit with festive refreshments, decorations and entertainment. Christmas Open Studios is the perfect opportunity to start that essential Christmas shopping.
