Thanet Open Studios



Thanet Open Studios became an annual event each August, that takes place across the towns of Ramsgate and Broadstairs as well as in Margate and the Villages, created by Ramsgate Arts in 2011 and nowadays organised by a collective of artists.

Featuring many of Thanet’s finest artists and their studios, this is an ideal opportunity to meet artists, to discover how and where they produce their work and buy from them directly. It is the interaction between artists and visitors that makes an Open Studio visit very special and reveals how many artists are working in the area.

Visit to keep up to date with what’s happening. For 2018 the voluntary team that organise the event are taking a short break, with plans for Thanet Open Studios to continue in 2019. The event is currently organised by artist Mike Samson (York Street Gallery) and Emily Tull.  If you are an artist or crafts person in the Thanet region and would like to participate in the Open Studios scheme contact to be on the mailing list.
