Krowji Summer Open Studios


Krowji has confirmed plans to run its Summer Open Studios event in May and June this year– as the creative hub continues to plan recovery from the devastating fire last spring.

Almost exactly a year after the serious fire destroyed the North Light building, the tenants at Krowji are delighted to welcome visitors into their studios to shine a light on their work and celebrate the artists and makers who call the Redruth site home.

Around 50 tenants will be taking part in Krowji Summer Open Studios – running from May 28 – June 5 as part of the wider Open Studios Cornwall initiative.

Open Studios provides a chance to meet the makers and see behind the scenes in artists’ studios, which are usually closed to the public. Around 50 artists, designers and makers will be opening up their studios to the public at this year’s summer Open Studios. This is one of only two Open Studios events which occur each year at Krowji.

Fiona Wotton, chief executive of Creative Kernow – the charity which owns Krowji – said: “We are thrilled to be able to showcase the incredible work of our community of artists and creatives through Open Studios at Krowji and to welcome visitors to the largest creative hub in Cornwall.

“We hope visitors will put Krowji on their itinerary as they tour the many art spaces taking part in Open Studios Cornwall.”
