Open Studios 2017

Are you ready to join in? It’s on its way
HVA members can be part of our flagship Herts Open Studios event, held over 3 weeks in September.

Changes are afoot!  Hillary is looking at how we can improve Open Studios going forward and more details for OS2017 will be available very soon.  Watch this space! 

This year Herts Open Studios runs from Saturday 9th September to Sunday 1st October 2017. With all the feedback from both recent reviews and our January Members Meeting there will be some exciting developments for OS17 and beyond to look forward to. This includes more emphasis on on-line information and marketing, exciting changes to the hard copy brochure/trail leaflets as well as more support for members and participants. We’ve also listened to feedback about groups and taking part.

The full Open Studios campaign and signup will start begin from February. In the meantime, while we are finalising arrangements, why not renew your HVAF membership and take advantage of our early-bird renewal discount. New and existing embers will also need to be signed up before registering to be part of April exhibition at the New Maynard Gallery. 

Area Co-ordinator Vacancies
