Carshalton Artists has announced they will be hosting a virtual fair this weekend.

The news comes after their annual open studio's event was put to a halt due to the pandemic.

Carshalton Artists Studios will launch on Saturday, June 27, and run for one week up until July 5.

Taking place for the last three years, the festival has become widely popular, attracting over 3000 visitors every year to artist’s studios and local heritage centres.

Organisers have planned free online workshops and demonstrations as well as; exclusive storytelling of Roald Dahl's Billy and the Minpins, a water-themed competition trail and an artwork hide and seek on the streets.

Carshalton Artists Studios is also encouraging families and adults to take part by showcasing their own artwork on their windows.

The concept is part of an on-going open windows idea that has been seen widely across social media platforms.

Co-founder and Sutton artist, Helena Vaughan, said: "We wanted to put on something the artists and the local community could be proud of and feel connected to.

“We could not have done all this without the support of the community, our partners and the artists involved- it really is a group effort.

" We also wanted to thank all those involved by still showcasing the amazing talent we have hand picked over the years”.
