Registration for Herts Open Studios 2020 is currently suspended and will re-open once we can announce details of our Virtual Open Studios. At that point, all the current registration guidelines will be updated
We had just started distributing our Call for Artists leaflets alongside on-line promotions, when our flagship event come into the headlights too. As with the Big Art Fair, we have decided that Open Studios cannot go ahead in the same format as previous year. We cannot be sure that studio visits will be welcomed by artists or visitors. All the resulting change and uncertainty means that we are deep in discussion to offer a virtual event a little later in the year. With no printed brochure, we also have a better margin/window for registration and some space to work on getting our Virtual Open Studios right for everyone.
We were able to stop the on-line promotion and will recycle spare leaflets. On-line registrations have been suspended. Those who have already booked will be able to receive either a partial refund (against the revised Open Studios we are currently putting together) or a full refund if you decide not to take part in the new event.
A virtual event does mean further changes to the web site, but rest assured we will be updating information and announcements just as soon as we can. As always, we’ll have help videos in the web site members area to help get you started.
