The Briggait opens it's doors for Doors Open Weekend
The Briggait is a beautiful Category A listed building in Glasgow’s medieval quarter, the Merchant City. Originally built in 1873, the Briggait was the city’s fish market for over 100 years. By the turn of the millennium it was clear the building was in severe need of some TLC; rain poured in and parts of the Briggait were entirely derelict. In 2001, Wasps Artists’ Studios set out on the long road to redevelop the building and it has now been transformed into a vibrant new home for over 80 visual artists and cultural organisations.www.waspsstudios.org.uk www.thebriggait.org.uk
A few artists will be allowing the public to have a peek into their studios.
