Planning is already underway for the popular Hebden Bridge Open Studios event.

This year the event will take place on July 3, 4 and 5.

Last year more than 80 artists welcomed visitors into their studios and workshops.

The Open Studios weekend is centered in Hebden Bridge and extends to Mytholmroyd, Old Town, Heptonstall and Todmorden.

Artists from across the town and the surrounding Upper Calder Valley are invited to take part in this regular fixture on the Hebden Bridge cultural calendar.

This a fantastic opportunity to showcase the wealth of talent in our vibrant creative community.

The Open Studios steering group is keen for even more artists to take part this year.

The application form and all information are available to download from the website www.hebdenbridgeopenstudios.org <http://www.hebdenbridgeopenstudios.org/>

Anyone needing assistance with the online application form can contact steering group member Dorothy Simester at Artsmill on 01422 647072.

The closing date for applications is February 23.

Visitors should look out for details of the weekend when the Hebden Bridge Open Studio brochure is launched in May.

This will contain details of all the artists taking part and where to find them.

It will be available in local shops and venues across Calderdale.
