Cambridge Open Studios is a thriving community of over 500 artists, craftspeople, and designer-makers working throughout Cambridgeshire. Our aim is to promote the making of original works of art and craft, and to forge lasting relationships between local people and local makers.

July Open Studios 2022 will take place over the first four weekends in July.

  • Paula de Santis Smith
  • Eric Marland
  • Sarah Walsh
  • Virginia Albutt
  • Penny Frith
  • Ian Siragher
  • Bilgin Soylu
  • Chrissie J Hawkes
  • Ernie Butler
  • Sarah Ruff
  • Kate Green
  • Liz Schwier
  • Jenna Wass
  • Frances Wetherell
  • Jane Frost
  • James Hill
  • Sarah Dodkin Rush
  • Karen Faulkner-Dunkley

Painters, jewellers, ceramicists, woodworkers, sculptors, textile artists, photographers, and much more provide the opportunity to browse and buy directly from the artist. Many of the artists show in their working studios so you can see how their art is made, and all artists are happy to talk about their art and how it is created.

July Cambridge Open Studios is free to enter, as is the e-Guide, App and local trail leaflets that you can find in outlets and studios around Cambridgeshire.

Although July Open Studios is our main event, COS is an organisation that promotes our community’s artists in a safe and supportive environment all year round – and you are welcome to join us!
