We are thrilled to reveal 30 amazing artists will feature in 15 Studios in this year’s event – from painters to potters and printmakers, timber craftspeople to textile creators and illustrators to installation artists.

Join us for a dynamic, long weekend filled with the opportunity to meet the artists in their own spaces or in collective gallery spaces across the Southern Highlands. Art enthusiasts and collectors can enjoy a rare opportunity to see behind the scenes, meet and directly support local makers.

The curated art trail embraces the Wingecarribee region from Balmoral Village to Joadja and through popular tourist destination villages Mittagong, Bowral and Moss Vale. You can take a self-guided tour to visit local artists, buy art, and this year join many workshops over the long weekend. An opportunity to gain new appreciation for the region’s rich and diverse art scene.

Arts represented this year include original ceramics, drawing, mixed media, painting, print, sculpture, textiles, metalwork, woodwork, jewellery, printmaking and more. This is a fantastic opportunity to experience quality local artwork and purchase art straight from the artists themselves.
