NEOS DeeTour Day!

A NEOS DeeTour Day - Monday 12th Sept

This year’s North East Open Studios (NEOS) promises to be the best yet with over 1,000 exhibitors. Founded in 2003 - NEOS has gone from strength to strength making it Scotland's largest open studios.
An award winning, not for profit collective of artists, makers and galleries in the North East of Scotland invite the public into their workshops to let them see how their work is created.
Art lovers have the chance to meet hundreds of painters, sculptors, metalworkers and print-makers during the event which runs from the 10th to the 18th Sept.

This year also sees the first organised NEOS tour, so that visitors can experience a day of NEOS on Royal Deeside. The event for 16 people has been specially compiled by DeeTour a newly formed company by Moira Gash and Sarah Harker.

Billed as a great opportunity to relax & enjoy the delights of a hand-picked selection of crafts and artists, the day tickets are priced at £35 and will include refreshments and a light lunch.
DeeTour is a new tour and excursion business based on Royal Deeside, and intends to offer a selection of packages to suit visitors and locals alike.
