Open Studios

Open Studios is at the very heart of the Coastal Currents Arts Festival.

Open Studios is an opportunity to see local artists and makers in the places and spaces where they live and work, either in their home or studio.

We have an incredible line-up of local artists, which reflects the pool of creative talent that lives and works in 1066 Country. From Battle to Udimore, taking in Bexhill, Hastings, East Hastings, St Leonards, Rye and Northiam.

Over the two Open Studios weekends you can follow the artists’ trail, explore the local area, talk to artists in their studios, make a purchase, commission a piece, or just browse.
