Open Studios Cornwall is back with its summer programme. Artists and makers across the county are emerging excitedly from their work and lives, throwing open their studios for some socially distanced creative activity. From the 29th August to the 6th of September you will have the opportunity to visit makers and artists’ studios, both physically and virtually. Open Studios Cornwall has worked tirelessly with all of the artists, to ensure guidelines around Covid 19 security are followed, and every effort made to run a safe event during the current situation.
Open Studios Cornwall is a Cornish wide event with over 200 creatives participating. Take a drive, and explore the variety of makers and designers creative spaces across Cornwall. Over 30 of Krowji’s tenants are taking part in the event, so we are a good destination to see a lot of creative work at one stop. Most of the Krowji artists taking part will be opening their physical studios, and some will be opening virtually through their websites and social media. Some will be doing both!
You’re invited to visit our site in Redruth, and wander through the Open Studios taking in some amazing work and processes. Many of our artists will be selling their work. The experience of understanding an artist’s process and speaking to them about a piece they have made by hand is quite unique. Find something bespoke, a one off, something particularly special to the artist or maker, and hear the story of the piece first hand.
We have worked hard to ensure we are offering our visitors and our makers and artists a very safe and considered event experience. Our site at Krowji has undergone a thorough risk assessment and we are happy to carefully open our doors to the public. Social distancing and face coverings will be mandatory throughout our buildings. Each studio has an individually specified limit of people allowed within at one time. We will have safe designated waiting areas to ensure social distancing can be maintained at all times. Directional paths through the buildings will ensure correct flow of people. We are really excited to see welcome you all to our site, and thanks to lots of preparation we are looking forward to hosting a very healthy and happy event. Oh and did we mention, the gorgeous Stones Bakery of Falmouth will be here with a pop-up refreshment stand, serving some of their delicious goods!
