East Neuk Open Studios is a twice-yearly Art Trail taking in over 30 artist and designer studios and workshops throughout this beautiful corner of Fife, known as the East Neuk.
Come and spend a day or a weekend in the picturesque East Neuk and follow our Red Balloon trail to discover our talented artists, designers and makers from East Neuk Open Studios (ENOS). Twice a year, in Summer and Autumn, our artists throw open their studio doors to welcome visitors and to demonstrate and talk about their work. There’s always an exciting range of paintings, textiles, prints, jewellery, illustrations, photographs, ceramics and furniture on sale too.
Red balloons and ENOS signs indicate each artists’ Open Studio – stretching from Upper Largo to Boarhills via St Monans and Cellardyke. Get further details about who’s exhibiting, download a brochure and check out our maps here on the ENOS website to plan your visit to our corner of Fife. Our new brochures will also be widely available to pick up from various tourist offices, bars, cafes and businesses around the East Neuk, St Andrews and beyond.

East Neuk Open Studios is a free event – just find the red balloons and pop in to visit any participating artist you like! However, some East Neuk studios are in old, traditional and quirky buildings and therefore not always suited for access by the less able, wheelchairs, buggies and prams. It’s always best to contact the artist in advance to ask about access to their studio space.
Our Open Studio dates for Autumn 2016 are:
October 8th – 9th and 15th – 16th October, 10.30am to 5.00pm
Dates for Spring 2017:
May 20th – 21st and 27th – 28th, 10.30am to 6.00pm
Please note that not all artists can accept debit/credit cards, so please bring alternative payment methods if you plan to purchase!
We look forward to your visit!
