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

Open Up

Sat. 1 May 2021 — Mon. 31 May 2021

Free

For 23 years, artists and craftspeople from across the region have been showcasing their wares and letting curious folk nosy around their workspaces for Open Up Sheffield. The open studio event usually takes place over two weekends in May, but for 2021 it's going online – and spanning the whole of May.

Open Up 2021 will feature the work of participating artists on dedicated pages on the event's website. Expect to see artists working in everything from watercolour, oil and acrylic paint to jewellery, ceramics, textiles, crafts, wood, glass, photography, print and mixed media.

As well as browsing and potentially buying artworks, you'll also be able to join in virtual studio demonstrations and artwork tours.
