Harborough Artist Cluster

18-19th MAY 2024 – 10am – 5pm
Admission free

Harborough Artist Cluster invites you to meet some of its artists and makers in their Spring Open Studios weekend. You can take a fascinating tour of their studios found around Harborough town centre and its nearby countryside villages. This is free weekend event, with a studio trail to follow which includes seven studio locations and the work of 19 artists and makers to enjoy. The Studio Trail Guide will be available in many of Harborough’s independent shops and businesses and also to download free from the website’s Events page.

The artists and makers of Harborough Artist Cluster enjoy meeting fellow art lovers to talk about art and share their processes, tips and techniques. Visitors can buy directly from the artists or perhaps discuss a commission for a special gift or decoration for your home.

Many artists offer cards and prints alongside their original pieces. Others offer tuition and workshops which you may want to join. There is a wide choice available to everyone – and all in the vicinity of Harborough.

This year’s Open Studios event takes place over two days and includes 19 artists and makers, who specialise in every possible discipline. These include ceramics and glass, photography, painting, collage and mixed media, drawing, printmaking textiles and sculpture. All studios will be open from 10am to 5pm and entry is free.

The group includes several professional artists with national reputations, alongside new and emerging artists in the area. The connection between them all is that they live and work in Harborough and the surrounding area – and they are great friends!
