Open Studios this September, looks to be one of the most exciting since Artshed has taken part.  Some of the exhibitors across Hertfordshire are new working partnerships.  From Art Symphony showing at the Old Town Hall Courtroom, Oaklands Staff and Students at the Oaklands College in St Albans to re:create in Berkhampsted to Hornbeams showing at the Mill Green Art Group along with a good number of new individual artists.  Pick up a brochure at many of the county’s libraries and museums, as well as here at Artshed.

Support Hertfordshire’s artists and visit some over the Open Studios month.

 East Herts Showcase exhibition is at Courtyard Arts from 31st August to 11 September, opens from 10.00 am – 4.00 pm

Anne Tilby is running three Thursday sessions during the Summer break with her re-cycled materials.


The workshops are designed for children and adults to have fun using materials normally heading for the bin and landfil and turning them into puppets, masks, fun head gear. The workshops are designed to make you think further about what we chuck away, but also to encourage the children to use their imagination and have fun.

Discounts apply – book two or more places/sessions costs are reduced to £15.00 pp

Ideal for children aged between 7 – 11yrs.
