Opening Party Friday 21st June 6-9pm, continues Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd 12-6pm at Kingsgate Workshops, NW6 2JG
For more than forty years, Kingsgate Workshops has been supporting an exciting bubbling pot of creativity, providing much needed longevity and security for artists so they can get on with making and developing their work.
Every Summer, we invite the public in to celebrate and get to know our creative community.
View the making spaces of our artists, designers and makers:
The spaces are gleefully haphazard and idiosyncratic; full to the brim with the works of the artists and makers, and much else besides. The objects that inspire and support their practice surround them, each maker in their own habitat, cocooned in their own ways of thinking and seeing the world.
Buy art, design and craft pieces that are personal and unique:
You can buy ceramics, paintings, jewellery, homewares, fashion, and much more, directly from the people who make it. This helps to support our makers and artists, helping us keep the community going.
Try out creative processes, techniques and skills:
You can also explore the processes and techniques used in our studios at our taster workshop sessions. These beginner-friendly workshops led by skilled artists and makers are offered at a discounted price. It’s a good opportunity to try out the classes run here at Kingsgate and see if you might enjoy taking on a new hobby!
Our summer Opening Party will take advantage of our beautiful sunny Yard. Join us for drinks before browsing the studios inside. All are welcome to come and celebrate with us!
Our curated Shop space in the Project Space will show off a few of the pieces you definitely shouldn't miss. Jewellery, homewares, fashion, and stationery will sit alongside affordable sculptures and wall art. Many of these pieces are exclusively available for sale at Open Studios Weekend, and can't be found anywhere else.
