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.
Each year over 60 artists are involved, and 40 studios from Piha to Glen Eden, 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.
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 live music, children's workshops, exhibitions and artist talks.
