This shabby collection of buildings, just behind the Wimbledon Dog Track hides a gem of fascination filled to the brim with working artists of all kinds. The space in a converted office block and a factory space that has been subdivided into scores of studios is rented out to a wide variety of people working in a variety of artistic media—painters, sculptors, portraitists, textile artists, illustrators and cartoonists rub shoulders in a dazzling display of multicoloured variety.
Twice a year the Studio opens its doors for a general exhibition, when you can walk around, browse, talk with the artists and buy works of art to grace your wall, garden or living rooms. The place is just brimming with talent and ideas. Watch out on the website for the next show, you won't be disappointed. Leave a good 3 hours to walk around.

Buy art from real artists because they need the money otherwise they starve.
One purchase means an artist can eat for a day, Two purchases means they can have a drink as well, three purchases and they can pay the rent for another week and thus make more ART. It's all down to you.

a great opportunity to visit artists in their work spaces and to talk to them about their work, and to buy art work direct from the artist. And it's free!!

I have been visiting Wimbledon Art Studios Open studio weekends for many years. In that time it has grown into a very well run show but has remained a relaxed, fun & free event for all the family.
The art work on display is very diverse, there really is something for everyone. The artists displaying their work are very happy to engage the visitors, some will even give demonstrations throughout the weekend.
Allow plenty of time for your visit, there really is so much to see & do & take the children there are special activities for them too...and all for free.

It's the sheer size of this collection of artists' studios that impresses. Certainly not the location just beyond a near derelict pub and grotty industrial gunge near an 'S' bend in the Garrett Lane between Wandsworth and Tooting. I attend the bi-annual Open Studios where, after a preview on small boards of some of the artists' works in a reception area, one can walk directly into each of the component buildings, the most modern on four floors with a lift, the older a giant shed accessed initially up external steps housing fifty or more studios on each of its three floors. Some doors remain locked; behind others works occasionally attract, less occasionally repulse, or elicit no reaction at all. Most of the artists are available for a chat or even an explanation of their works. Drinks and light refreshments are available on site. Works purchased can be wrapped stbthe point of payment in a ground floor office.

One of the most inspirring places I have visited in years. 250 artists in one large venue. Twice a year the doors open and the public can view the work and purchase artwork. A very high standard with a real feel of creativity. A real inspiration for all budding and existing artists.

My wife and I were really lucky to be in London when the twice a year Wimbledon Art Studios Show was on and it simply amazed us. We must totally recommend the next one which is 14th-17th May.

When we went, over 150 artists were opening their studios to the public. There was everything, from the beautiful, the stunning, the clever to the completely weird. our senses had an emotional roller-coaster ride, with each room as different as the artists who work there.

The work is for sale from a few pounds to a lot more, with something for everyone and the great thing is its free to get in. A little secret, if you go on the Show's Thursday & Friday evenings there also free wine & beer.

We went by train to Earlsfield National Rail station, which is close and with 19 trains an hour from Central London & taking only 12 minutes, it was easy to get there. Also there's lots of free parking.
