The 2016 Open Studios at the Chocolate Factory comes with an added festival-feel. Some studios will be hosting an event, adding a little extra to this open access, free event that has showcased the art, design and craft from the makers based at the studios for more than twenty years. All events will be ’13 Minutes With…’, each artist coming up with a way to approach this time slot, doing with it what they will – a talk, a happening, a demonstration, all of them will be insights into their practices as well as their minds…
