Carshalton Artists' Open Studios Returns!

Kate Marsden

It’s been a bit of a crazy few months and somehow the third annual CAOS event is only a few weeks’ away. I’m currently woefully underprepared (but hoping to pull it out of the bag at the 11th hour!), however here’s a little taster of what you can expect to see this year, and it’s definitiely not just studios (although I’m always happy to “just” nose around studios…). We also have galleries, historic buildings, free workshops, demonstrations AND a pig trail (more on this later, but you can see my pig here).

CAOS now includes 60 selected artists across 25 locations and two weekends (23/24 and 29/30 June) and we’ll be collaborating with Sutton Museums and Heritage and local schools to celebrate the work of local arts and crafts artist Frank Dickinson, who built Little Holland House in Carshalton Beeches. FInd out more about the event on our website and please follow us on Instagram and Twitter. I’ll be posting more about it nearer the time!
