Spike Island Open

About

The annual Spike Island Open is a chance to explore behind the scenes of this former Brooke Bond tea packing factory.

Spike Island is home to over 70 artists’ studios, Spike Print Studio, UWE Fine Art BA/MA students, as well as many other creative practitioners including designers, writers, filmmakers, animators and photographers.

Meet artists in their studios and see what they are working on. Dotted around the building, screenings, performances, installations, workshops and talks take place. Highlights include clay vessel throwing with artist Sarah Wilton, young people’s film screenings with Calling the Shots and a sculptural installation ‘impossible to pin point in time or space’ by artist Ben Rowe.

Some of Bristol’s best street food traders host pop-ups, including Big O Donut Co. and Gopal’s Curry Shack, while our very own Spike Island Café offer a colourful organic menu

To get there from across the harbour, catch a Bristol Ferry Boat and encounter artworks on board.
