East Neuk Open Studios is a twice-yearly Art Trail taking in over 35 artist and designer studios and workshops throughout this beautiful corner of Fife, known as the East Neuk.
Come and spend a day or a weekend in the picturesque East Neuk and follow our Red Balloon trail to discover our talented artists, designers and makers from East Neuk Open Studios (ENOS). Twice a year, in Summer and Autumn, our artists throw open their studio doors to welcome visitors and to demonstrate and talk about their work. There’s always an exciting range of paintings, textiles, prints, jewellery, illustrations, photographs, ceramics and furniture (even some bespoke wooden surf boards!) on sale too.
Red balloons and ENOS signs indicate each artists’ Open Studio – stretching from Upper Largo to Boarhills via St Monans and Cellardyke. Get further details about who’s exhibiting, download a brochure (coming soon) and check out our maps here on the new ENOS website to plan your visit to our corner of Fife. Our new brochures will also be widely available to pick up from various tourist offices, bars, cafes and businesses around the East Neuk, St Andrews and beyond.
For Summer 2014, we are delighted to welcome a seven more talented people from across the East Neuk on to our roster, making this the biggest ENOS yet!
If you are a practising artist, designer or maker with a working studio based in the East Neuk and are interested in participating in ENOS please get in touch with us on firstname.lastname@example.org
East Neuk Open Studios is a free event – just find the red balloons and pop in to visit any participating artist you like! However, some East Neuk studios are often in old, traditional and quirky buildings and therefore not always suited for access by the less able, wheelchairs, buggies and prams. It’s always best to contact the artist in advance to enquire about access to their studio space.
Our Open Studio weekend dates for 2014 are:
Summer: May 24-25th and 31st May – 1st June, 10.30am to 6.30pm
Autumn: October 11-12th and 18 -19th, 10.30am to 4.30pm
Please note that not all artists can accept debit/credit cards, so please bring alternative payment methods if you plan to purchase!
We look forward to your visit!
