Open House At Wimbledon Art Studios

Chance to buy from local artists

Wimbledon Art Studios is about to host one of its twice-yearly Open Art Shows.

The complex of studios just off Plough Lane in Riverside Yard, Riverside Road, Earlsfield, is home to more than 200 artists covering fields including printmaking, furniture, painting and ceramics.

It's the largest single site art studio complex in Europe. The two buildings form a massive maze of studios, but friendly staff will be on hand during the event, from May 14-17 to point you in the right direction.

The majority of the artwork is shown in each artist's own workspace and you can experience many of the creative disciplines including painting, sculpture, ceramics, textiles, photography, printmaking and furniture design.

The last Open Studios art show in November attracted more than 4,000 people, offering the public chance to buy directly from the artists.

Opening times are Thursday from 2pm-10pm; Friday from 2pm-9pm; Saturday from 11am-7pm; Sunday from 11am – 6pm. There's free parking nearby in Riverside Road. For a free invitation, call 020 8947 1183
