ARTISTS and creatives across Craven are preparing for the annual North Yorkshire Open Studios event which will take place over the first two weekends in June (June 3/4, June 10/11). 

More than 100 will be opening up their studios to meet, promote and sell their work - direct to members of the public. People will also be able to see the artists at work.

Held for the first time in 2005, the much-loved event has grown to become one of the largest in North Yorkshire's cultural calendar.

Those taking part in Craven include two in Horton-in-Ribblesdale, one in Clapham, one in Settle, one in Airton and one in Malham.

There will also be six studios to visit in Skipton, four in Gargrave, and seven in Grassington.
