Dorset Art Weeks

Artists from across the whole of Dorset take part in an Open Studio.

This year celebrates 30 years since the very first Dorset Arts Week. The 16 day event attracts both locals and visitors from all over the UK.

With over 250 studios opening their doors from May 14th, there will be a huge array of works from paintings, printmaking, ceramics, jewellery, sculpture and modern crafts to mention a few.

To have the opportunity to see how artists are inspired, start a piece of work and experience for themselves a creative working environment with all the artists tools and works in progress is fascinating for visitors- they can engage with an artist and get a sense of their viewpoint and where the ideas for these pieces of art came from. An insight into the artist’s mind is a very interesting experience for many people, especially if they are not able to be creative themselves. A lot of effort goes into making sure visitors have a really interesting and memorable visit who can see and buy unique artworks that are not often available, most of which are newly made especially for the event.

A directory and easy to use app are available on the DAW website.


The event is finished.
