Friday 17 June, 6-9pm (market stalls and music until 10pm)
Saturday 18 June, 11am-5pm
After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, Bow Arts will once again open its doors for its much-anticipated annual Open Studios event. Inviting visitors behind the scenes at the iconic Bow Road site – the charity’s first and biggest studio site – this is a once-a-year opportunity to meet over 100 painters, sculptors, theatre designers, product designers, performers, jewellers, fashion designers, illustrators and more.
This evening event will feature live music, a makers’ market and food and drink stalls. Open Studios is an event for all ages and a unique opportunity to meet the talent and celebrated creatives of east London. Meet artists and makers, learn about their creative processes, and maybe even buy a work of art.
The on-site Nunnery Gallery will also be showing the annual Bow Open Show, presented this year by Baesianz, showcasing artwork from across Bow Arts’ 14 London-wide studio sites. All artwork, in the studios and the gallery, will also be available to buy using Own Art, the affordable art scheme that enables buyers to spread the cost of an artwork across 10 interest-free installments.
