Roundhay Artists Open Studios

Visitors are welcome in the homes and studios of participating artists


In what’s now a well-established and highly successful May Bank holiday outing tradition for visitors and local residents in North Leeds, 22 Roundhay Artists, a group of professional artists with a wide range of art-making activities, will again open up their home studios over the bank holiday weekend on 6-7 May 2018 to receive locals curious to find out what real artists’ studios look like, and to say hello again to enthusiastic returning visitors from previous years.

There is a wide range of work see, including print-making, ceramics, painting and glass art through to contemporary installations. All the artists are present to talk about what they do, and their work may be available to buy. A local arts trail map showing where to go will be widely available from local shops and outlets throughout Leeds, and is downloadable from the Roundhay Artists Facebook page at as well as our website Refreshments are available from local community spaces on the route.

“It’s a great day out. The artists are all very welcoming and happy to talk about their work, and it was lovely to have the opportunity to buy a piece of real original art” (2017 visitor)

“It’s wonderful to have a chance to talk to people interested in what’s actually quite a rare opportunity to meet artists, and who are fascinated to find out a bit more about the whole process of making art.” (2017 participating artist)
