Open Studios

DESIGN Canberra’s popular Open Studios give the public an opportunity to meet makers to gain an insight into their practice and philosophy. And they’re back in 2020 so artists can sell work directly to the public.

Step inside the studios of Canberra’s best makers and designers to purchase contemporary handmade ceramics, furniture, textiles, glass and more, directly from the artists.  

In 2019, over $60,000 income was generated directly by studio artists (an increase of 13% from 2018). Some artists make more in DESIGN Canberra than they do all year.
