The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Each November, ceramicists, jewellers, furniture makers, printmakers, painters, sculptors and more open their studio doors to curious visitors at Yorkshire Artspace's Open Studios. It's a fantastic opportunity to see the working spaces of some of our city’s most creative residents and make some headway with your Christmas shopping. This year, due to lockdown, it's moving online.

Hosted on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, the Online Open Studios event will give you opportunity to peek into artists' studios in a series of “meet the maker” posts. You'll be able to view and buy artwork in an online gallery, take advantage of special offers, and pick up some tips from a series of video demonstrations and talks. There'll be online workshops in how to make your own sock monster doll with Sil Devilly; a ceramic boats demonstration with Brian Holland; talks from Alison Churchill, Paul Evans and Fiona McAlear, and studio tours with Chris Boland and Emily Thatcher.

Keep an eye on the Yorkshire Artspace website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for full timings and details coming soon.

Join in the Studio 10 Silent Auction on the weekend too.

Get to know some of the Yorkshire Artspace residents in our series of interviews from our Meet the Locals archive.
