Open studios is a great way to see artists in their own studio space and to have the opportunity to discuss with them details about their work, their techniques and motivations. The artists are always very happy to share with anyone interested in their work and for the festival they invite you to visit them. This is not something you can easily do normally so we encourage you to take this opportunity.
