There are many great events that go on in Dorset. From regattas to food fairs. For art lovers, one of the highlights has to be Dorset Art Weeks.
It is one of the largest Open Studio events in the country. It often allows visitors to meet the artists in their own studios. With the artists, designers or makers on-hand you can engage with their work on a deeper level, and learn about the extraordinary range of materials, skills and traditions that inform their work.
For 2018 Dorset Art Weeks is open from 26th May to 10th June.
As well as the myriad of wonderful artists and designers taking part there are events that allow you to see everything from the excitement of red hot raku pots lifted from the kiln and placed onto sawdust that instantaneously combusts into an inferno of flames to getting life drawing lessons from a professional.
