Camberwell Arts Open Studios is proud to promote artists and creatives in and around SE5 to art enthusiasts.   We already work with artists working across all disciplines from painting, ceramics, textile art, jewellery and sculpture

We're inviting all practising artists, makers and creatives with a studio space or working from home, based in SE5 to take part this winter.

If you are a practising artist, maker or creative in SE5 - Why not get involved?

Dates for winter 2017 are 2-3 December for Studios east of Denmark Hill

9-10 December for Studios west of Denmark Hill



Camberwell Arts Open Studios dates back to 1994 and was in fact how the festival started, when a group of artists decided to open their studios all at the same time. This grew into a 9 day festival which still takes place each June.

Open Studios in Camberwell takes place twice a year, in June and again in December. Artists working across disciplines open their studios at the same time making Camberwell a destination for christmas shoppers seeking original and hand made gifts.  

Camberwell is a loosely defined geography and our participating studios are based from Loughborough Junction to Peckham.

Benefits include - meeting new audiences from the collaborative marketing, selling your work without commission, being listed in the Camberwell Arts brochure and website, growing your artist's network by joining forces with others doing the same thing.

This summer we also produced short videos of a couple of our artists and we're keen to continue this work. If you're taking part in Camberwell Arts Open studios and would like to have something similar made then please do get in touch on  

Additionally we had guided walks bringing visitors to studio spaces and this is again something we expect to repeat this winter.

Our June Open Studios were mentioned in the Evening Standard, Fad Website and South London Blog
