From Saturday 25th June, the “fourth funkiest town on the planet”* – Hebden Bridge, will feature artwork by Open Studios artists in the windows of shops, galleries and other venues, creating an Art Trail through the valley.
The main Open Studios event begins on Friday 1st July and runs to Sunday 3rd July. The event has been running for 18 years and 85 local artists are involved this year.
The whole valley from Mytholmroyd and Hebden Bridge through to Todmorden has such an incredibly vibrant cultural scene and once again we’re inviting people from all lands – funky or otherwise – to visit over eighty participating artists’ studios open this July. This is a rare opportunity to see inside the creative spaces of a colourful range of artists – from enthusiastic amateurs to internationally exhibited professionals at the top of their game.John Noble-Milner aka, wildlife sculptor ‘Geckoman’
