Artists in Surrey are inviting people into their workplaces for the Surrey Artists Open Studios event from June 11 to 26.

Between 11am and 5pm each day there will be the chance to visit 280 artists in 170 studios based all over the county.

The event is a real celebration of artists working across all art forms and a fantastic opportunity to meet Surrey-based artists, find out more about their work, take part in workshops and find inspiring artworks to take home.

Programme manager Caitlin Heffernan said: “This year we are supporting younger artists to develop new work in the county by pairing them with libraries for a bespoke residency programme.

“Joining us for this community-wide event has many benefits; not only are you supporting artists in the local community, but you could also be inspired, learn new skills or have a go at making something yourself.

“There are many artist-led trails to help you plan a day out. Some can be walked or cycled, combining culture and being outdoors.”
