...to go until the next Art Trail!

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. 

Next Art Trail: 25th-27th Nov 2022

Next Art Trail:

25th, 26th & 27th November 2022

Wivenhoe artists and makers are busy gearing up for the next Wivenhoe Art Trail on the 25th, 26th and 27th November 10-5pm each day. Over 30 artists in 20 studios and venues are gearing up to welcome you in to view new work exclusively made in Wivenhoe.

This year We invite you a PV festive drink at four of the venues in the village at; the Nottage, Alison Stockmarr and Richard Haywards Studio 30 Walter Radcliffe Road, Catherine Dodds Studio at  No 3 Pearl Walk and The Wivenhoe Book Shop on Friday night from 5-8 pm for a little Christmas cheer.

This, now established event, is a must for your calendar in the run up to Christmas and with so many artists to see why not make a weekend of it?  An amble around Wivenhoe’s quaint streets with its many welcoming watering holes, is a fun way to find the perfect unique gift as well as a peep into the studios where they are made. From artists to ceramicists, photographers to jewellers to textile artists, Wivenhoe makers have a breadth of talent to suit every purse.

Yet again Michaels estate agents are promoting us. These boards will signpost studios and our QR Code map will help you navigate each venue. We guarantee a feast for the eyes and a warm welcome awaits. 

 

To compliment the Art Trail week we are delighted to share with you that Moving Image will be showing ERIC RAVILIOUS: DRAWN TO WAR (PG) at William Loveless Hall on the 29th November at 7.30. Charlotte Bernays, No. 16 on the trail map, will be donating a limited edition print to raffle at the event to help fund this rather exceptional film.

 

St Mary's Church annex will also be open during the weekend for refreshments. Here you can have tea and cake in the wonderful new building whilst taking in the new stained glass window designed by James Dodds.
