******Taster Workshops programme now announced - Book Now******

It's back! After last year's extravaganza of demonstrations, and our festive Winter Show, Kingsgate is opening our doors again for the Open Studios 2017!

The eclectic makers, designers, artists and more at Kingsgate open their studios to show you how they create their work, offer you beautiful arts and crafts for sale direct from the maker, and share their skills with you in our fantastic activities programme.

Inside our charming Victorian factory turned labyrinthine artists' studios, over 75 artists, makers and designers will be there to welcome visitors.

There'll be plenty to get involved with on the day - see the full event programme here.

If you'd like to get ahead and book, choose from the following tours and workshops:
