artists in studios

Open Studios 2021

Visit Banks Mill during our winter Open Studios event to meet over 50 artists, designers, makers and creative services providers. 

As well as seeing first hand how our artists create their unique designs and handmade products you can also buy original work directly from the artists themselves, something that can't be experienced on the high street.  Or meet one of our creative service providers to discuss how they can work with you; from branding and website design, digital and video promotion or photography services.

To find out about all our artists taking part visit our open studios website. Among the artists taking part you can see a variety of different disciplines including:

  • Jewellery
  • Glass 
  • Ceramics
  • Printmaking
  • Art
  • Textiles & accessories
  • Fashion design
  • Illustration
  • Make up design
  • Tattooing
  • Photography

You can easily spend the whole day wandering around this old Victorian rope factory, which was converted into studios twenty years ago. 

  • Free entry
  • Free prize draw
  • Kid's art trail
  • Limited free parking nearby

Please note that there is no lift in Banks Mill so there is limited access to the ground floor only for less abled visitors.
