Ask an Artist - Open Studios part one

Refreshed and back from their brief break Peter and Laura are both taking part in Bucks Art Weeks during June.  Local Art Weeks, or Open Studios events are one of the best ways to start interacting with the public.  Whilst the exact format differs depending on where you are they offer an opportunity to be part of a larger event and for you to benefit from the marketing and advice that the organisers supply.  Laura and Peter have been involved in the Buckinghamshire event for quite a few years and both of them are enthusiastic advocates for the concept.For anyone listening in early June 2021, both Laura and Peter will be opening their studios over the  2 weeks starting 12th June as part of Bucks Art Weeks: www.bucksartweeks.org.uk for details of opening days and times.  Bucks Art Weeks is the open studios event for artists and makers in Buskinghamshire, just to the north west of London, England
