Next Trail: 19-21st May 2023
Welcome to Wivenhoe Art Trail!
The Wivenhoe Art Trail is non profit making event designed to support and promote artists and makers who reside in Wivenhoe and wish to open their studios to the public. It is run by a team of Wivenhoe artists and makers for Wivenhoe artists and makers. We conduct two trails per year, charging a nominal fee to collectively cover leaflets, advertising and promotional material. Our website and social media platforms promote participating artists and show a flavour of their work and contact details. The event is open to established and emerging artists with no vetting procedure. There is no specific venue or assistance in finding spaces to exhibit. We simply ask for all exhibitors to be currently residing in Wivenhoe and actively promote each event.
If you live in Wivenhoe and wish to take part please do get in touch....

The daffodils are out, it’s Spring again and the Wivenhoe Art Trail is firmly in sight! Whether local or travelling from afar, save the date, mark the calendar and book your accommodation, because the Wivenhoe Art Trail is even bigger this year with many new talented makers alongside established favourites!
We’re hoping for some beautiful spring weather for the Spring Trail, featuring our exclusively, home grown artists and makers, all within ambling distance of each other. To ensure you see all of the exceptional talent on offer, make a weekend of it so that you don’t miss anything.
Our riverside town, with its quaint streets and waterfront history, makes for a delightful weekend of meandering round the many studios and seeing art and crafting in action.
From paintings to textiles, collage to photography and ceramics to prints, each venue will be offering innovative and original work for discerning arts and craft lovers. Wivenhoe makers continue to evolve their work and there are always new creative progressions to discover. This birds eye view of studios offers visitors an insight into working practice and encounter great, creative conversations. It’s always a pleasure to share techniques and creative processes.
Last year’s Spring Trail saw Millfields Primary School children display their artwork at St Mary’s churchyard and we are pleased to announce that this year we are extending this offer to Broomgrove Primary School. Lorraine George from the Sentinel Gallery and the Trail organisers are keen to encourage the next generation of home-grown makers and you can expect to see even more washing lines of laminated work hung in the churchyard.
The church annex will be open for refreshments, and is well worth a look in its own right.
Once again The Trail Team and artists look forward to your continued support and can guarantee a warm, creative welcome at each studio.
