Open Studios Kingston is a new creative space and retail store in downtown Kingston, Ontario created by Vanessa Martin of Vanessa Jane Martin Fine Art and Mandi Coulter of Yes, please! Sewing Studio. Open Studios Kingston began as a meld of the two crafts and quickly became a space that aims to inspire and nurture your creative side, support the maker community and just feel good! From painting and sewing to needlecrafts, sketching and more you are bound to find something that sparks the artist in you!
Our philosphy is one based on creating freely and shopping mindfully - as well as keeping things new and fresh! We offer a variety of creative classes taught by ourselves and others, host pop-up events, sell local art, thrifted finds and hand made goods and even house a full sewing studio with fabric and patterns! We are always looking for new and fun events and love collaborating with our community so please stop by - our goods and offerings are always changing so check back often!
