The hugely popular annual Open Studios weekend invites visitors to explore behind the scenes of this former Brooke Bond tea packing factory, now an international centre for art and design.  Spike Island, besides running a distinguished programme of contemporary art exhibitions, is a vibrant hub of creativity for Bristol and the South West. Home to over 70 artists’ studios, a print studio, UWE fine art course and many other creative practitioners including designers, film-makers, animators and photographers, Spike Island is a key contributor to Bristol’s thriving cultural life.

Artists will be throwing open their studio doors for visitors to explore, allowing access to work-in-progress and a chance engage with artists in their working environment. Cally Spooner’s compelling new exhibition will be open in the main gallery, while performance, talks, mini exhibitions and film-screenings will take place around the rest of the building, as well as opportunities to make your own art. Spike Print Studio, Spike Associates and Spike Design will all host events, activities and introductory tours. Food and drink will be available from a number of visiting caterers as well as Spike’s own popular café. Expect some fantastic art and all kinds of sensory delight, fascination and surprise.
