Open Studios 2021

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

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 businesses to discuss how they can work with you; from digital and video promotion to 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:

  • Art
  • Ceramics
  • Classical Guitar
  • Fashion Design
  • Glass 
  • Home Interiors
  • Illustration
  • Jewellery
  • Make Up & Body Art
  • Mosaics
  • Photography
  • Pottery
  • Printmaking
  • Tattoo
  • Textiles and Accessories
  • Videography

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

Please note that we will be encouraging mask wearing; there is no lift in Banks Mill so there is limited access to the ground floor only for less abled visitors.

There is no parking available at Banks Mill Studios, however pay and display on-street parking is available from 40p per hour as well as parking on Bold Lane, Chapel Street, Brook Street and Ford Street.
