This annual event affords the visitor the opportunity to interact with individual artists and artisans, who live and work in Cyprus, in their own studios. Visitors are encouraged to study our website featuring detailed information as well as MAPS to assist in locating each studio or work-space. Each participant has a MAP# on the map – please ENLARGE the map to see the numbers better. Each participant also features a more general map to their area on their individual entries.
CLICK on the participant’s image and you will see seven more examples of their work.
Studios are open during the 4 weekends of October between 11.00hrs and 17.00hrs on Saturdays and Sundays. Individual participants elected certain weekends to be open to the public – please look at the individual entries to avoid disappointment.
Entrance is free and visitors are under no obligation to buy, but we live in hope! And don’t forget to enter the competition: see the entry form under PRIZE DRAW. An entry form is also available at each participating studio and work-space – just ask for one and have it signed. Many of the participants undertake commissions – please consult with them direct.
Banners bearing the distinctive orange splash will be displayed near the entrance to each open studio. Should you require specific information, please contact the studio or artist direct – you will be assisted.
