There are ten days left to enter and be considered for the Wirral Open Studio Tour. The tour began in 2009 with just 10 artists taking part, last year saw 44! We took part for the first time last year and hope to be selected again this year. The tour takes place on the weekend of the 13th and 14th June and artist submissions are open until 2nd March.
