Carshalton artists are opening their studios to the public this month, giving an insight into the area's thriving creative scene.

Sixty artists will display work for sale across 25 locations, hosting free demonstrations for families and children.

This year brings a collaboration with Sutton Museums and Heritage and local schools, to celebrate the work of Carshalton Arts and Crafts artist Frank Dickinson.

Dickinson’s self built, Little Holland House in Carshalton Beeches will be open for all four days of the festival, and local schools are busy producing their own Dickinson inspired artwork to be displayed across the village.

There will also be specialist workshops in printmaking, run by local artist Jackie Smith, using the house and its contents as its inspiration.

Sutton Museums and Heritage will also embrace the CAOS at Honeywood Museum in the centre of Carshalton for both weekends.

Here professional artists will be displaying work, visitors will be able to follow an arts trail round the house and workshops will be run by local arts engagement specialists ‘Team Imagineers.’

The Carshalton Artists Open Studios will run over June 29-30. Details of the event can been found on their website:
