North Yorkshire Open Studios won't be happening this year in 2016. We are taking a year off to develop and expand the event, however, we are hosting an Art & Garden themed event programme for you to take part in and enjoy in the meantime - we'll be ready to see you in 2017!

If you are interested to apply to take part in NYOS, contact France-Leigh for more details: franceleigh@chrysalisarts.com  /  01756 748529
