Please note: Jamaica St Studios is housed in a grade two listed building, a former Carriage-works. This means that our building is not accessible to those can't or are less able to use stairs. 


Our doors are swinging open once again on a sunny weekend in June to celebrate over 20 years of artistry.

Parties, new commissioned artworks and our signature auction will spring up over three floors of our historic former ‘Carriage Works’ building. With a unique chance to meet over 30 artists, all working in the heart of Stokes Croft, making new work from printing to painting, illustration to sculpture, textiles to graphic design.

Spend the day getting lost behind-the-scenes at one of Bristol’s most exciting artist studios!

Over the past two decades our annual Open Studios event has become increasingly popular, and attracts over 1500 visitors.

Each year we open our doors to celebrate artist studios and spaces. Alongside celebrations, Open Studios is our main source of fundraising for the studio. Each year we have to fundraise to subsidise the costs of running our studios. We couldn’t be more thankful to everyone who has come, donated and celebrated with us!
