Art Studio Trail, Southern Highlands

Part of the Southern Highlands Arts Festival is the Art Studio Trail

2nd & 3rd November and the 9th & 10th of November 2013

Once again the feature event of SHAF is the annual Southern Highlands Art Studio Trail, when artists open their studio doors and allow visitors inside to explore their creative habitats across the first two weekends of November, 2013.

This year 22 studio doors are opening for the Art Studio Trail, so visitors will be able to meet the artists, see their work in the place it was created and purchase directly from the studio door.

A few examples from the day;
