Not only are artists offering to sell you the fruits of their labour, they are also offering the chance to have a delve into their studios to see where and how some of the work is made, at the Open Studios Event (1st). The lilting tunes and uplifting sounds of a special Christmas Bruncheon accompanies the Arts Market on the 8th.
