Wasps Meadow Mill Open Studios

Take a glimpse inside artists’ and designers’ studios at the Wasps Meadow Mill Open Studios weekend on Sat 6 and Sun 7 August.

It’s been almost three whole years since the artists, designers and makers at Wasps Meadow Mill Studios opened their doors to the public for their annual Open Studios weekend, and we’re delighted to see it make a return! 

As life slowly gets back to normal, the community are ready to showcase their workspaces again. Normally hidden from public view, it’s a great opportunity to get a glimpse of how things are made behind the scenes. Since its beginnings in 1989, Meadow Mill – an old jute mill transformed into artists studios – has been home to the largest collective of artists in Dundee. With nearly 60 studios spanning across three floors, it’s a hive of activity and creativity. Inside you’ll find potters, jewellers, painters, designers, weavers, illustrators, fashion designers, sculptors, and much more, as well as an exhibition of tenants’ work in the Exhibition Space on the top floor.

Pop along and have a look inside some of the studios, chat to the artists and designers taking part, and get the opportunity to buy direct from makers.

There are plenty of active travel options nearby – you’ll find an e-bike station in Verdant Works’ car park, and there are frequent buses services that run along Lochee Road. There are also parking spaces outside the building for those who need them, and parking permits will be available on the day.

Meadow Mill is an accessible building with a lift to all floors, and an accessible toilet on the fourth floor.
