Taking place over 3 days in late February each year, this free event will stretch from Athenree to Pukehina. Studio doors will be open across Tauranga, Mount Maunganui, Papamoa, Katikati, Te Puke and all the areas in between.
This is your opportunity to come and meet the artists in their favourite spaces - each as unique as the creators.
Explore the workshops where dreams are hatched and the makers make things happen. Find out what makes each artist tick and what drives their practice. Discover how and why canvas, clay, textile or metal became the medium they pour their ideas, hearts and souls into.
Most importantly view their fabulous work and get a chance to learn more about that special piece, it might just be the one that's been waiting for you.
