Angus Open Studios (AOS) is an association of artists, craftsmen, and designer-makers in and around Angus, Scotland. Our showcase event, "Angus Open Studios", takes place each year during May, when local artists and craftsmen open their studios to the public. This is an exciting venture designed to put Angus Artists, Craftsmen and Designer-Makers more clearly on the map of Scotland.

Winter Trail

Thank you to all who visited our creative hubs and studios for the AOS Winter Trail 2014. We are pleased to announce the winner of the vistor prize draw was Jessie Sword from Dundee. She has chosen to use her prize to fund a summer mixed media workshop with Issy Valentine at her studio in Forfar, called Mementous Mementoes. They first met on a Creative Techniques in Embroidery, City & Guilds course a few years ago and enjoyed meeting up again on the Winter Trail.
