Hampshire Open Studios showcases art, craft and design across the whole county of Hampshire. It takes place in over 250 venues, each opening at different times during the 10 days up to, and including, the August Bank Holiday Monday. Some artists open their studios individually, while others get together to show their work in groups.
The Wessex Guild of Craftsmen has taken part for the last few years, with a successful show at the Paterson Centre in the pretty village of Swanmore. Visitors can browse the different crafts and chat with the makers about their work.
