Frome Open Studios – A brief history
Frome Open Studios will be maturing into it’s 10th year in 2017 and has become a staple event which takes place during Frome Festival. Some of our artists also open up their outdoor galleries for the Hidden Gardens trail – an added bonus. We produce a brochure each year which is available in print and online (here!) to help you find your way to all our venues and artists.
We are proud be part of the local community and collaborate with other local creative organisations in Frome including Divas Café, Black Swan Arts, Frome Festival, Frome FM and many other local businesses.
We are entirely volunteer driven, just local artists and makers who love their town. We’re grateful to everyone who has been a part of the Frome Open Studios story, including; Steven Jenkins, Helen Langford, Annie Colgan, Stina Harris, Gill Chambers, Samantha West, David Kemp, Paul Newman and last but not least our 7 year coordinator Caroline Walsh-Waring.
We also thank our many volunteers who help in smaller (but very much essential) ways; spreading the word on social media, stocking or distributing brochures, putting up our posters etc.
We hope you and all the visitors enjoy the event as much as we do creating and participating in it.
