The beautiful Hawkesbury Valley, just over an hour from Sydney, has long been known as the "Home of Artists" and is home to the Hawkesbury Artists and Artisans Trail.
The Trail was created by Artists for Artists and its members are some of the most talented and well-known Artists and Artisans in the Hawkesbury region.
The Trail is a non-profit organisation which has been designed to promote local, professional and emerging Artists and Artisans and allows visitors to meet the members in their own unique and creative environments.
You are invited to enjoy a weekend celebrating the arts with some of the Hawkesbury Region's most well-known Artists and Artisans. Members of Trail will be throwing open their studio doors to the public, showcasing their talents and creations in their own studios, during the Annual Open Studio Weekend on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th August, from 10am to 4pm daily.

This premier event on the Hawkesbury Arts calendar gives visitors an opportunity to explore Hawkesbury, visit the studios, meet the Artists and Artisans, learn more about their Art and watch them create. Here you can find out the Artists' stories and why they are driven to create and purchase affordable fine Art direct from members.
Some members will have guest Artists at their studios, so you can see more Artists and Artisans in one location.
Several members also teach across all mediums, give demonstrations and run workshops, so if you feel inspired during your visit to the studios and want to unleash your creative side, feel free to ask about tuition or a workshop. Lessons are available for both adults and children. We look forward to meeting you in our studios!
Studios will be open across the Hawkesbury and located in Windsor, Hobartville, Grose Vale, Grose Wold and also Kurrajong Heights.
