Artists from Walden, Newport and Sewards End are among those showing their work through this year's Cambridge Open Studios.
Also taking part are artists in Cambridge, and in the district council areas for East Cambs, South Cambs, Huntingdon and Fenland who are opening their studios to the public for free.
Cambridge Open Studios takes place over the four weekends of July 3-4, 10-11, 17-18 and 24-25 from 11am to 6pm. Not all artists will be open each weekend.
In addition to home studios, an exhibition is being held at Linton village hall, and nine art galleries across the region are open.
In Saffron Walden, those taking part are Paula Armstrong, a tapestry and mixed media textiles artist whose work is on show on all four weekends; Alan and Anne Foxley, who specialise in hand-built ceramic sculpture and pots are available on weekends two and three; and Jill Leech, a textile artist whose work is on show on all four weekends.

Sonia said: "I’ve been a member of Cambridge Open Studios since 2003, so this will be my 19th consecutive year exhibiting.
"After this year’s AGM I was elected as chair for a year, having been on the management team looking after publicity.
"I’ll be exhibiting in Linton Village Hall with silver jeweller Justine Jarman from Streetly End, textile artists Hannah Rae and Donna Goymer from Ickleton and Camps End; and artists Georgina Burton from Newmarket and Denise Brandreth from St. Ives."
For the first time in its history, there will be no printed guide. This is for two reasons - to move into the digital age, and to save the planet, a move accelerated by the pandemic.
