Sheffield artists’ open studios celebration

Open Up Sheffield was created in 1998 as an annual showcase for independent artists and craftspeople, across South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire. The event, which is free and open to all visitors, has become a popular fixture in the local creative calendar. Now in its nineteenth year, art lovers across the region are as keen as ever to take a look inside the workshops and studios of Sheffield’s local artists. Simon Thake reports for Sheffield Live!
