Welcome to Wivenhoe Art Trail!

 

... where creatives fling open their doors and invite you to view their latest creations. From ceramics to collage, paintings to textiles, a plethora of art and craft awaits.

Wivenhoe is renowned for its creative community and the Wivenhoe Art Trail is a movable feast of established favourites and emerging talent. This event offers an opportunity for you to meet the makers and see their work, often in their studios and working environments.

If you live in Wivenhoe and wish to take part please do get in touch....

  • Lone Quist Edwards.jpg

    Lone Quist Edwards

    I break down the world around me into abstract shapes and colours. Whether working in paint or making collages I am interested in layering and overlapping of tone and texture. I am inspired by my Scandinavian background where light and colour play and important role in people’s daily lives especially in the winter months when daylight is short and landscape can be bleak.

  • Caroline Moiret

    I am constantly awed and uplifted by the interplay of colour and light and the beauty of the natural world: it’s organic, modular and infinite progressive forms.  The unique qualities of glass allow me to explore and express my feelings in a way not possible for me in any other medium.  Whether I am making sculpture, vases, panels, jewellery, dishes or lighting, this essentially translucent material never ceases to delight and absorb me and I am rarely happier or more at peace than when I am working in my studio.
