Open Up Sheffield is one of the largest and most successful open studio events outside London, showcasing the creative talent in South Yorkshire and Derbyshire for the past 24 years. The volunteer-run event, which takes place over two weekends in spring, features over 100 artists and artwork comprised watercolour, oil and acrylic painting, jewellery, ceramics, textiles, crafts, wood, glass, photography, printmaking, digital and mixed media. This year, artists' work will feature online too.
Studios span the length and breadth of the city – including Oughtibridge, Parson Cross, Nether Green, Manor Oaks, Kelham Island and even as far out as Hathersage. Plan your route with the Open Up location map.
As part of Open Up 2022, there'll also be a series of workshops, demonstrations and exhibitions across the two weekends. Among the sessions will be stalls, demos and workshops with the Sheffield Printmakers collective in the Walled Garden at Meersbrook Park on 30 April–2 May, 11am–5pm.
