Building a Masterpiece Collective

Melkbos Ateljee represents a group of local art enthusiasts whose mission it is to promote local artists, engage with local businesses, and support the next generation of Melkbosstrand artists by presenting an annual OPEN STUDIOS event.


An open studios event is an event in which artists and artisans open their studios to the public. Many of the participating artists allow the public to access their studios which are normally their own private workspace. An open studio event can offer an unusual insight into these spaces and how artists work. Some artists and artisans open their studios, while others display their work in communal venues all across the town. At these locations, you may get the chance to interact with the artists and artisans, learn more about their work, purchase artwork, or just get inspired.


We are pleased to announce that this year's Melkbos Ateljee Open Studios event will take place on the weekend of September 21st and 22nd, 2024.
