Virtual Studios

Take a tour of Hounslow’s artists and makers through Virtual Studios this summer.

Virtual Studios is now over, but the artist videos are all still available. If you’d like to find out more about any of the artists, take a look at the artist profiles. Virtual Studios is part of the Hounslow Creative Enterprise Zone’s open studios programme. If you’d like to be kept informed of future open studios projects, virtual or conventional, sign up for our newsletter.

27 June to 5 July 2020

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.

Follow #virtualstudioswest between 27 June and 5 July for 60-second video snapshots (at noon and 7pm) of painting, fashion, jewellery, photography, music, mosaics, dance…and hats! There will be how-to guides, time lapses, interviews, performances, and much, much more.

Virtual Studios is a Hounslow Creative Enterprise Zone project, supported by the Mayor of London, and hosted by Creative People and Places Hounslow. We will be taking over Creative Network West’s Instagram account @creativenetworkwest for the project. See our supporters below.

Events

Thursday 2 July 2020, 5.30–6.30pm on Zoom/Facebook Live: Meet five artists from Virtual Studios, ask them your questions, and find out how they’re responding to lockdown. Watch the replay on the CPP Facebook page.
