Joining Open Studios Ayrshire as an Artist or Maker
What is Open Studios Ayrshire?
Open Studios Ayrshire (OSA) is a non-profit making, artist led, organisation which aims to promote artists and makers in Ayrshire.
Members promote their quality product and working expertise by organising an annual Open Studio Weekend, over four days, on the last full weekend of April.
Why Join OSA?
Our successful and vibrant organisation is now entering it’s seventh year.
It is constantly progressing and developing and is a great way for artists and makers throughout Ayrshire to promote their work, develop their skills and build support and friendships with other artists and makers.
We are very proud of the positive contribution OSA makes to creative life in Ayrshire.

Members pay a subscription fee of £100 which enables the organisation to promote the Open Studios Weekend and other events.
As well as a full entry on the website each member has a write up with photographs of their work in a specially produced brochure which is widely distributed in Ayrshire and beyond.
OSA is organised by its members as a collective. All members are asked to participate in the administration of the organisation through membership of a Facebook working group.
By becoming an online community we have found it easier for members to become more involved, by sharing ideas, and giving support to their fellow artists and makers.
There are also many opportunities throughout the year to meet socially with other artists.
