open studio weekends

12-13 + 19-20 OCTOBER 2024

Welcome to Autumn Arts 2024. The planning for the October Trail is well underway and we are welcoming artists from all over Stroud, in all directions.

The deadline for registration with Autumn Arts Open Studios 2024 is Tuesday 2 April at the end of the day. Many people have already signed up (thanks to those). There is a link below to the registration form – either online or a downloadable version. Get in touch if there’s a problem!
The cost for one page in the brochure is £220 per artist; the cost for a double page is £340 per artist. 

There will also be an Events section in the brochure featuring special exhibitions and events. If you would like to offer any relevant information for this section, particularly any organised workshops or talks, do get in touch.

And if you are a business or venture looking to widen your horizons, we have very competitive advertising rates which we can send you on request.

To recap:

There will be two open studio weekends, 12/13 and 19/20 October 2024. Opening times are 11am – 6pm each day.

You will need up to four images (high resolution 300dpi minimum) of your recent work plus an image of you at work in your studio; a studio statement or a description of your work; and details about access to the address, parking and so on. Payment is by BACS (or cheque if you don’t do internet banking) which will be due a week after invoice.

Here is the application form for the 2024 Autumn Arts Trail. We’re delighted to be running it again this October 12-13 & 19-20, and look forward to taking part with you whether for the first time or as a returning artist. If you know anyone who would like to be included, please pass this on. Please return the form as soon as possible, and definitely by the deadline of Tuesday 2 April.


The Autumn Arts Trail is a window into each artist’s practice; it’s enticing, inspiring, and impressive. The work reflects the place. Stroud and its environs are blessed with a rich mix of talent and skill, a magnet for those who make and those who appreciate.

This is our annual opportunity to discover makers we haven’t met and to chance upon art we might not otherwise see. We invite you along to reconnect with old friends and make some new ones. The trail is laid out geographically so it’s easy to negotiate your way around, with lots of cafés on the way to keep you fed and watered.

If you have any questions or you’d like to get in touch, just email
