More than 100 artists and designer-makers are preparing for 57 Christmas fairs, pop-up exhibitions and studio events throughout November and December (10th Nov - 9th Dec) as we presents our ‘runaway’ Christmas Season at interesting venues across the county. Jewellers, ceramicists, textile artists, painters and photographers, metal sculptors, wood turners, stone carvers, print-makers and glass artists will be presenting seasonally-inspired art and crafts to the public for free, and they’re the perfect places to pick up original quality handmade gifts for under the Christmas tree.

This October, we're encouraging artists across the county who haven't taken part before to come along to one of our information sessions to hear about Taking Part. If you are an artist, they're a great opportunity to hear about what Artweeks can do for you, and decide whether exhibiting as part of Artweeks will suit you. This year's events are at the following venues:
Cornerstone Arts, Didcot; Thursday 4th Oct 2018 7.30pm-9.00pm
The Jam Factory, Oxford; Monday 8th Oct 2018 7pm-8.30pm
The Mill, Banbury; Monday 15th Oct 2018 7pm-8.30pm

It's September and that means preparations for NEXT year's May festival - yes that's May 2019 - are getting underway and it's time to buy your 2019 diary. Here in the Artweeks office the choice of a new desk diary with glossy pictures accompanying each week-to-view is a pleasurable task of no small importance. What have you gone for?
