Artists can’t invite you into their studios right now, so instead they’re doing the next best thing—giving you an insight into their work, their process, and what motivates them on Instagram. Between 27 June and 5 July 2020 artists will be using #virtualstudioswest to post video snapshots of painting, fashion, jewellery, photography, music, and dance! There will be how-to guides, time lapses, interviews, performances, and opportunities to meet the artist.

Virtual Studios is produced by Creative People and Places Hounslow, a Watermans project, for the Creative Enterprise Zone’s (CEZ) open studios programme. Virtual studios will be followed by opportunities to see artists at work in person once social distancing measures have been lifted.

To take the Virtual Studios tour, follow #virtualstudioswest or @creativenetworkwest on Instagram from 27 June, or click here to find out more.
