Chichester Open Studios Art Trail

From East Marden to Climping, Goodwood to the Witterings and Charlton to Bognor, we have a complete range of arts and crafts including painting and drawing, ceramics, sculpture, photography, printmaking, jewellery, glass, mosaic, textiles and wood turning.        

The Venues

The venues are numbered consecutively following a nominal trail. This is not intended as an official way around the trail, it is merely a logical way of numbering the venues.

It is a good idea to study the Trail Guide and the website to select the artists or the media that you would like to see and then work out your own route.

As well as being an exciting and fruitful way of expanding your knowledge or interest in a subject it is also an opportunity to explore some of the more interesting byways and villages that network through this beautiful corner of West Sussex.

What is an Open Studio?

A place where art is the focus: where the walls lay evidence to a creative dialogue drawn out from the equipment, tools and artifacts which populate the space.

The opportunity to ask questions, start a conversation with the artist or just walk around, with fellow visitors, admiring the works put out on show.

This is a wonderful opportunity to see most of the artists in their working environment, together with their equipment, materials and work in progress, thus giving a unique insight into their working practice.
