Havelock Walk Open Studios

Havelock Walk, where our own Supermundane is based, is home to a diverse community of creative people, who live and work on the cobbled mews at the heart of Forest Hill.

Twice a year the painters, sculptors, photographers, ceramicists, designers and other arty types of Havelock Walk open their studios to the public in a two day exhibition. Open studios offer a unique insight into the working life of the artists, and afford visitors the personal opportunity to meet each artist together with their work.

The artists invite you to come and join the excitement, and to show your support for creativity in the local community.

The next Open Studios is December 1st/2nd from 12-5
