You can still become a full member of Peterborough Artist Open Studios and be added to the website, mailing list and Open Studio if you miss the February deadline.

The Artist Member deadline for the printed brochure entries is usually mid February with membership running 1st March to end of February the following year.

No refunds can be offered after the brochure production has begun (usually 1st March each year) to ensure print costs are covered.

The printed brochure and postcards year on year still provide the best form of information and advertising for visitors to the open studios and it is planned to continue with this system and the February deadline for the forseeable future.
