Visitors to Dersingham, near King's Lynn, are encouraged to visit each studio on the trail to meet the artists and look at their latest work.

The trail is co-ordinated by professional artist, Stephen Martyn, who produces atmospheric landscape paintings of Norfolk from his garden studio.

He said: 'During art trail open events you can follow the trail round local studios, see artists at work, have a chat, and you may find something to take home with you too, even if it's only a small print or a greetings card.

'You'll be visiting artists in their homes, where they'll be pleased to welcome you and show you what they do.'

Other artists on show include painter Marty Griffin, Valerie Anckorn, who makes scented candles, and Jill Ilett, who has a new studio at her home in Heath Road.

The art trail takes place on Saturday and Sunday, November 26 and 27, from 10am to 4pm. Original work, prints and greetings cards will be on sale.
