Open Studios

Visiting Open Studios is the perfect way to enjoy the eclectic range of art produced across the Isle of Purbeck. Our artists are looking forward to welcoming you into their studios and sharing some insights into how they work.

You’ll find painting, printmaking, photography, ceramics, sculpture, wood, textiles, jewellery and much, much more. Entry to all studios and exhibitions is free. Look out for the small yellow and blue PAW Art direction signs – or have a look at the PAW Map and plan a trail around your tastes, mode of travel or timescale.

You may like to take your cheque book with you just in case temptation strikes. Some Open Studios have card machines, but not all. Or you can secure your latest art related purchase by paying a deposit.

Please remember that all studios and exhibitions are work environments and are likely to have hazards such as uneven surfaces, sharp tools, etc. Visitors must take great care. The trustees cannot accept liability for loss, injury or damage.
