Open Studios Waitākere is an annual weekend opportunity for artists resident in the Waitākere Ranges Local Board area to open their studios to the public. With over 70 artists involved, and 40 studios from Huia to Henderson Valley, Titirangi to Te Henga, it's an inspiring weekend out and about!

The weekend provides the opportunity to meet local artists, see art in action, purchase local artwork and learn about the creative process.

Visit some of Waitākere's most celebrated artists including sculptors, painters, jewellers, illustrators, ceramic artists and photographers. Many of the artists will have works for sale, so we recommend having some cash ready!

You can take a self-guided tour at your own pace with our Open Studios Map and mobile App, or jump on an Open Studios Bus Tour. Enjoy a short break from your Open Studios touring and join us at the Lopdell Precinct for Events ranging from creative workshops, a film screening and exhibitions.

To help you get to know some of the talented artists involved in past events, watch our Open Studios video and enjoy our artist interviews on the website above. 

Before the event, you can pick up copy of our brochure at your local library, gallery or cafe, or email to request a brochure by post.

This event is funded and supported by the Waitākere Ranges Local Board.
