Artists set to open up studios for Harleston and Wavaney Art Trail

Dozens of artists from the Waveney Valley will open up their studios to the public from this weekend.

A total of 38 artists will be taking part in the annual Harleston and Waveney Art Trail that will take place on the weekends of June 25 and 25, July 2 and 3 and July 9 and 10.

The trail was started by a group of professional artists in 2005 and all studios and workshops are within an eight mile radius of Harleston.

The group includes painters, sculptors, ceramicists and artists that work in textiles glass, mosaic and film.

This year, the trail welcomes four new artists, Sara Johnson, garden designer and painter, Kate Fisher, who makes stoneware wheel thrown pots inspired by seascapes, Rose Martin, who paints on silk with coloured dyes, and Suffolk born illustrator and photographer Paul Zawadzki.

During the studio open days, all the artists will be on hand to talk about their work. An all expenses paid trip to Venice is also up for grabs in a prize draw for anyone who visits four or more studios.

An exhibition of mini-works from every artist in the trail will be held at the Harleston Gallery. For more information, call 01379 855366 or visit
