Event description

Description

During the first weekend in October artists from St Mary’s Mill, Selkirk will provide visitors with a behind the scenes look at how they develop and make their work as part of Wasps’ Open Studios. Wasps’ Open Studios is a season of open studios events that are intended to give the public a unique opportunity to see where and how artists make their work. It is a chance to get to know participating artists and their practice in a welcoming and stimulating environment.

St Mary’s Mill provides workspace for around 15 professional artists and makers. It has a vibrant creative community and is home to artists with diverse practices. During the open weekend visitors will also be able to enjoy a variety of home baking and refreshments in the honesty café as well as live music.
Wasps Studios is one of the UK’s largest non- profit studio providers, accommodating around 800 visual artists, craft makers, creative industries and cultural organisations in affordable workspaces across Scotland. We aim to provide these practitioners with a secure place to create, experiment and engage with their local communities. This year, events will take place in Kirkcudbright, Nairn, Irvine and Selkirk and will include a selection of Scotland’s best known and most inspired artists.
