Things to do:

Arena Studios and Gallery is Liverpool’s industrious warren of artists’ studios – ceramicists, fine art, textiles, found objects, illustration etc – with occasional open days, auctions, visiting exhibitions and talks.

Led by a team of artists who volunteer their time, the studio’s gained a – deserved – reputation for its consistently thrilling and engaging work, both in and out of its warren of studios (accessed via Baltic Social bar, but only when there’s an exhibition on!).
