Frome Open Studios

Frome Open Studios is nearing its tenth year.

Started by a small group of local artists who began by holding the Frome Artists Café, the idea of the open studios emerged as an event in the Frome Festival.

From a simple beginning with 21 artists, the event has grown. In 2014 we had 68 artists in 24 venues. The Trail Map now features images and full details of each participating artist, is available to download from the internet and designed to follow from mobile devices.

Our website is now well established and refreshed throughout the year providing a valuable source of information for artists and residents.

We very much hope you and all the visitors enjoy the event as much as we do creating and participating in it.
