A number of artists from the Royston area will be exhibiting their work as part of Cambridge Open Studios month.
Open Studios month will see a number of artists from a number of specialisms, fine art, to photography, pottery, glass-making and more, open the doors to the public over four weekends in July.
A spokeswoman for the event said: “This is a wonderful opportunity for members of the public to see artists at work, discuss their inspirations and techniques, and to browse, purchase or even commission their work.
“As always, visitors are guaranteed a warm and friendly welcome - and no pressure whatsoever to buy anything. Cambridge Open Studios is completely free to visitors of all ages.”
Artists who will be opening the doors to their studios as part of the event include printmaking and textiles artist Anna Pye and Gina Ferrari, who works with textiles, embroidery and mixed media – both based in Steeple Morden (pictured).

Cambridge Open Studios is one of the oldest open studio events in the UK. It has its roots in the 1960s, when a small group of artists invited local people to visit their studios and see how their art was produced, as part of a movement to demystify arts and make them available to all. It currently has around 470 active members throughout Cambridgeshire, and is steadily increasing its membership figures year on year.
