CO-ORDINATE OPENING DAYS/TIMES
Also, if you are planning to open your studio on a weekday, do co-ordinate with colleagues in your area to be open the same day of the week to facilitate weekday visitors wishing to plan an area trail. So our recommendations are for
BARNET - Fridays
DACORUM - Wednesdays
EAST HERTS (& Broxbourne) - Thursdays
HARPENDEN - Tuesdays
NORTH HERTS (& Stevenage) - Thursdays
ST. ALBANS - Wednesdays
WATFORD - Fridays
WELWYN & HATFIELD- Wednesdays
in addition to other weekdays you plan to be open, this is to give visitors travelling across the County to your area the opportunity to arrange multiple visits on the same weekday.
The ultimate success of Open Studios depends on your own enthusiasm, so do involve yourself to the maximum extent possible .....and spread the word, we are a community network, support the project by suggesting to non-member artists that they join Herts Visual Arts!
Lastly, if you would like to join the project team, irrespective of whether or not you are opening your studio this year, do contact Linda Warminger on email@example.com
