Chance to visit artists’ studios on the Harleston and Waveney Art Trail

The eighth Harleston and Waveney Art Trail starts this weekend, offering people the rare chance to visit artists in their studios.

Members of the public can drop in to see work in drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, printmaking, garden design, textiles and photography, and

meet the people who make the work in their studios and workshops, often also in their homes and gardens, on June 23–24, June 30–July 1 and July 7–8, 11am–6pm.

An added attraction this year is a prize draw, giving visitors a chance to win an artwork, or a tuition course from art trail artists, to the value of the prize – first �350, second �150 and third �100. One voucher per adult (over 18) will be awarded to visitors at each studio they visit during the three weekends. All vouchers will be entered into the draw on July 15.

A taster exhibition with samples of everyone's work is on at the Harleston Gallery, in the Thoroughfare, while larger works will be on show in a new venue, the Pennoyers Building at Pulham St Mary, from Saturday, June 23, to Tuesday, July 10.
