The festive season is just around the corner and all over Brighton, Hove and beyond artists are opening their front doors. This Christmas 60 Open Houses invite you inside to browse, shop and mull, over a warming glass of mulled wine and a mince pie.
The Christmas Artists Open Houses create a special atmosphere, where you can chat to artists and makers in their homes and studios, whilst viewing a spectacular selection of individual, hand-made arts and crafts. Don’t miss a lounge filled with Christmas trees, decorated with ceramic flowers and crocheted brussels sprouts! See locally sourced pheasant feathers transformed into glamorous festive headdresses! While children can print their own T-shirts, visit a Santa’s Grotto and decorate some gingerbread.
The festival is also a community event and includes artists with learning disabilities, artists who have experienced periods of homelessness and a group representing creative ageing activities, alongside established, professional artists and makers, as well as young and emerging artists.
The Christmas Artists Open Houses festival provides a fantastic opportunity to shop away from the High Street and buy special Christmas gifts in inspiring environments. Kick off the festive season by picking up unique and original Christmas presents for friends, family – or for yourself!
Don’t forget to visit: www.aoh.org.uk where you can find out more about the Artists Open Houses. You will also find links to many of the artists’ and makers’ own websites.
The Artists Open Houses festival runs from 23rd November until 8th December 2019
