Angus Open Studios

Artist, Craftsmen and Designer-makers in Angus.

14th - 18th May 2015
Standing Stones

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.

New Directory Design 2015

AOS recently presented a worthy prize to Ruth Niven. All Final year Graphic Design Students at Duncan of Jordanstone competed to design our new AOS 2015 Directory and publicity materials. Ruth's design won after a members' vote, and will soon be full of our 59 members' information. Ruth's design is based around our members opening their studio doors to visitors. We hope you like it. We do!  


Although membership is now CLOSED for AOS2015, if you wish to be contacted for the following year, please do get in touch and we will contact you when Applications open again in August.

If you are an artist with a base in Angus, please look here for why you should join us.
