Lambeth Open is an affordable way for artists in the borough to show their work and a very accessible way for visitors to see art and craft work, and meet the people who created them.

Lambeth Open

On the first weekend of October artists and makers across the borough of Lambeth will be opening their studio, work spaces and homes to the public. Doors will be open Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 October from 10am to 6pm both days.

Started in 2009, Lambeth Open promises a wide range of arts and crafts on show including painting, sculpture, photography, textile design, jewellery, ceramics and print making. Entrance is free to all venues and the latest updated map can be found on our web site

This event showcases the fantastic wealth of creative talent tucked away in the borough and helps communities discover the various art workshops and studios that are too often hidden away in their neighbourhoods. It is also a unique way to meet artists face to face and learn more about the various technical processes involved in their craft. It is also a great opportunity to buy direct and support your local artists and makers.

Venues vary from artists home studios to our larger ‘Hub Venues’ at The Brix in Brixton and Portico Gallery in West Norwood. New this year will be our Showcase Central at Pop Brixton opening on Monday 28 September until Sunday 4 October. This will display a selection of Lambeth Open exhibitor’s work from across the borough as well as providing an information point for visitors to pick up this year’s Art Trails.
