Various artists studios in St Ives will be open on:
  • Wednesday 16th September
  • Saturday 19th September
  • Sunday 20th September
  • Wednesday 23rd September
Standard opening times are 10.00am to 5.00pm but this may vary for each studio.

This is one of the highlights of the festival for many people.
A chance to see a variety of St Ives artists at work and visit studios not often open to the public.

Many of these are in the historic Porthmeor Studios complex, where some of the great names in St Ives worked. These include Patrick Heron, Ben Nicholson, Brian Pearce, Julius Olsson and Borlase Smart. The studios are still in use today and many will be open. These include Naomi Frears, Sax Impey, John Emanuel, Richard Knott, Clare Wardman and Iain Robertson.

Porthmeor Studios is also home to St Ives School Of Painting - their programme of classes was previewed in an earlier blog post.

Many other studios around town will be open as well. These include Seb West, Angela Diggle, Trevor Price, David Holmes, Leslie Silver, Andrea Carr, Jo McIntosh and Sally MacCabe.
