|Artists’ Open House Weekend|
Your last chance to discover the hidden creativity in your neighbourhood
Artists will open the door to the places where they create their work - including their homes, studios, garden sheds and in one case an old bomb shelter. Visitors can browse as many as they wish on October 12 and 13.
This year around 100 professional and amateur artists will showcase their work. In previous years more than 15,000 visitors have attended the event, organised by the council’s arts team in conjunction with an artists’ steering committee.
As well as painting and drawing, artwork will include crafts, design, sculpture, printing, jewellery, photography, film and installations
The borough’s culture spokesman, Councillor Jonathan Cook, said: “This event is popular every year because it’s a rare chance to meet artists in their creative environment and really find out what makes them tick. It also means you can buy work directly from the artist themselves, boosting their sales and stimulating the local artistic community and the Wandsworth economy as a whole. “
The map is also available in your local library, and at various venues and organisations throughout the borough and can be downloaded on the free TiCL app available on Android and Apple devices.
