Wimbledon Art Studios is the largest single-site art complex in London. There are currently a hundred and fifty artists renting the space, working in all different types of fields including ceramics, drawing, illustration, jewellery, painting, furniture, fashion and textiles, photography, printmaking, and sculpture.
Every year they hold an open day, in which the public can view their work in the artists' own studio. The pieces in the exhibition are available to buy directly from the artist, commission free. Last year attracted almost four and a half thousand visitors. The next show is between 15th-18th May.
The studio believe that making entry free is a vital part of keeping the place alive and buzzing, but to be able to achieve they, they need the help of volunteers. If you love art, then you can always become a Friend of Wimbledon Arts Studios, and support your local artists.
