Welcome to North Yorkshire Open Studios – A free event that combines culture, breathtaking views and a chance to hone your navigation skills.

Each year, artists and makers across the whole of North Yorkshire invite the public into a host of intriguing spaces. From hidden locations on the North Yorkshire Moors and harbourside huts in Whitby and Scarborough to suburban living rooms in Harrogate and beautiful back gardens in the remote Yorkshire Dales.


With original works on show ranging from cutting edge craft and design to contemporary sculpture, paintings and ceramics, there will be something to inspire everybody. This annual event provides a great opportunity to buy or commission works for you, your home or your garden, as well as to discover the rich seam of culture that runs through North Yorkshire's breathtaking landscape.


NYOS also offers a host of additional events and activities, visit the Events page to see the full list of linked events and workshops.
