#hebdenmakeschristmas December 2 – 3

Open your own studio

Current HBOS members:
£20 per individual artist to open your own studio.

New members:
£35 to join HBOS for this event and open your studio.

This is a winter event and outlying individual studios may struggle. If you are not close to the center of Hebden Bridge or Mytholmroyd we recommend joining a central location with other artists or applying for the art and craft fairs.

Please contact us to discuss group rates for a single entry on the website, map and flyer.

Application deadline October 1 to open your own studio or be included as a group
