Q & A

Q: What is the time period a participant is committing to?
A: COS is taking place over the FIRST FOUR weekends of October 2016. You may choose to participate for one weekend only, or choose two or all of them – the choice is yours.

Q: What are the hours each artist will be open to the public?
A: Participants will commit to opening their doors on both Saturday and Sunday of their chosen weekend and be in attendance between 11.00hrs and 17.00hrs – or have a stand-in if they need to be absent for any reason.

Q: What do the numbers at the bottom of the membership form mean, i.e. 1&2, 8&9, etc.?
A: Those are the dates of the weekends you may participate. You need to tick the box(es) for the weekends you choose to open your doors to the public.

Q: Is the participation fee for one weekend?
A: No! The participation fee covers the entire event, no matter how many weekends you choose to participate.

Q: Does the participation fee cover the event only?
A: No. Your entry will remain on the website until the next Cyprus Open Studios event in 2017.

Q: I am not very computer literate – is there another way I can register?
A: Yes! Send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. telling us that you wish to register OFF-LINE and we will provide you with an alternative.
