Open Up Sheffield 2021

Open Up Sheffield is an annual open studios event that serves as a platform for artists to showcase their skills and share their creative disciplines with members of the public.

With over 100 participating artists and a number of Jewellers and silversmiths including Annette Petch, Janine Barnsley and Silver Psaltpot, Open Up Sheffield 2021 is sure to be a success. Open Ups response to the pandemic means that, in a change to previous years, the event will run for the whole month of May and that artists can choose to open their studios to visitors, or show their work online only.

This information can be seen on individual artists’ pages and you can book covid-compliant studio visits directly with the artists. Some artists are also offering virtual visits via Zoom, WhatsApp or FaceTime.

To arrange an appointment to visit, either in person or virtually, or to enquire about a purchase or to commission a piece of work, please use the contact details on the individual artists page.

Thank you so much for supporting Sheffield’s artists!
