July Open studios

The 2021 Cambridge Open Studios will take place over the first four weekends of July (3rd-4th, 10th-11th, 17th-18th and 24th-25th). Studios will normally be open between 11am and 6pm on both Saturday and Sunday. Each artist can take part for one, two, three or all four weekends. Numbers in blue refer to the studio numbers used in the Open Studios e-Guide which will be available to download from early June. PLEASE NOTE: Artists may ask visitors to make an appointment before visiting their studio. Others may choose to show their work in their windows only, with no visitors allowed inside. In both cases this information will be indicated on their entry.
