Currently the biggest open studios event in Wales is on during September, Helfa Gelf Art Trail 2013, where 171 studios and pop-up galleries throw open their doors to welcome visitors to studios across North Wales.

There are 12 Helfa Gelf Art Trail days on every Friday, Saturday and Sunday during September. Studios and galleries are open from 11am–5pm and it's FREE to visit. Studio spaces take every conceivable form: from disused shops to garden sheds and barns, from spaces in cafes to artists’ front rooms. This event offers an insight into this normally hidden world and allows the public to meet the artists and talk about how they create their work.
