  • 2Welcome to Open Studios Cornwall 2011

    This is the seventh year that Creative Skills has run Open Studios and this is our biggest event yet, with 205 artists and craftspeople opening their doors across Cornwall!

    With artists working in venues ranging from historic, beachside studios to converted cowsheds and remote cottages, Open Studios Cornwall 2011 is a celebration of the diverse and wonderful range of artwork that is created in one of the most varied and visually stunning landscapes in Britain.

    Creative Skills is delighted to welcome Truro Arts as the main sponsor of Open Studios Cornwall 2011. If visiting the artists this year inspires you to take up pencil, brushes and paint, then a trip to Truro Arts might be just what you need!

    We want you to be able to make the most of Open Studios Cornwall 2011 and so we would like to give you a few guidelines to help.

  • 3Using this guide

    The Open Studios Cornwall 2011 guide is designed to be easy to use. It is divided into West, Mid and North/East Cornwall and within each section, artists are ordered geographically then alphabetically. If you are planning to visit a particular area, such as Falmouth or St Ives, you can look up which artists are in that district. And, if you intend to visit a particular artist, you can find out who else is in their neighbourhood.

    Remember that opening times vary. Not all of the participants will be exhibiting for the whole week, so check the opening times before you visit.

    Each venue will be clearly indicated by an Open Studios Cornwall sign.

    The wheelchair access information given in the entries is only a rough guide to accessibility. If you have particular access needs, it is a good idea to phone the exhibitor in advance.

    Most exhibitors will be happy to take a deposit to reserve an artwork and make arrangements for you to collect it at a convenient time. They will put a red sticker on it; make sure that you get a receipt.

    You can commission work from some artists but make sure that what is agreed is confirmed in writing.

    Pick up the artists information card if you like their work, so that you remember where they are and can contact them again if you want to buy more of their artworks.

    Feedback is essential for the future development of Open Studios Cornwall. This year we have produced a questionnaire, which the artist will ask you to complete. If you can find the time to complete it you may win a bottle of champagne for your trouble!

    Lastly, dont forget your cheque book! Most exhibitors are not able to take payment by credit card but cash will do nicely, thank you!

    Creative Skills cannot accept liability for any loss, damage or injury sustained by any member of the public visiting any Open Studios Cornwall 2011 venue, visitors do so entirely at their own risk. Whilst every effort is made by the artists to ensure that their venues are as safe as possible, visitors must be aware that, in most cases, there will be chemicals and tools in the artists working environment and therefore care must be exercised.
