Hello!! We are back for 2022

Welcome to Artists and Makers 

We are delighted to tell you that Derbyshire Open Arts 2022 is open for your applications from Tuesday 19th October 2021 until Wednesday 12th January 2022.

We have an updated website with lots of new features for 2022. Some of the updates were implemented in 2020 and the rest are now in place for the 2022 Open Studio event, including the opportunity to take part in an Online Market from the beginning of April until the end of May - more information to come later.

A Few Reminders:

You will need a laptop or computer to complete your applications, (not a smart phone or tablet).

Individual applicants can now upload a maximum of 3 images onto the website as well as the brochure image.

Groups can now upload 1 image per group member (with their name) onto the website as well as the usual number of images per size of group for the brochure.

For more information click 'here' and scroll down.

At our last Open Event there were over 230 artists and makers exhibiting with us across Derbyshire, from Glossop to Egginton. Lets make 2022 even bigger. We can't wait to see your art in the brochure and on the website
