For three days in September, visitors will have a rare opportunity to see artists at work inside their studios in a building which is not normally open to the public. Opened in 2013, the purpose-built High House Artists' Studios was awarded RIBA East Award 2014, RIBA East Emerging Architect of the Year 2014 and RIBA East Client of the Year 2014 . Numerous studios will be open over the weekend, revealing the wide-range of artistic practice in the building.
