Open Studios is being run concurrently with the Deal Music Festival and takes place over the first three weekends in July, during the Deal Festival of Music and Arts, a major local cultural event. Artists and craftmakers from, Deal, Eastry, Ringwould, Worth and Walmer invite the public into their studios to meet the artists, look at their work and talk about art. Most items will be for sale and commissions can be negotiated.
This year we have hired Ringwould Village Hall for the 2nd and 3rd weekends for those artists who, for a variety of reasons, can’t open their studio.
The artists who organise Open Studios all operate in an unpaid and voluntary capacity. The guide book to accompany the event, listing the artists taking part, with easy to follow maps and directions, will be available from many local outlets including library, tourist information centres.
