Herts Open Studios 2014

Do email openstudios@hvaf.org.uk if you have space for a colleague to share your venue or you would like to participate but need a venue as I am starting to receive enquiries and will be able to put members in touch with each other. Detailed here are contact details for your Area Coordinators, and dates of meetings taking place this month in your area. Remember that the deadline for applications is 31 March 2014.
