‘A Chance to buy Art and Craft Directly from the Makers’
2019 marks our 7th annual event of this brilliant two-day, free to visit, community-led trail where local artists and artisans open their homes and studios to showcase their work to the public.
It’s a fantastic opportunity to see what’s happening in the ever growing local arts scene and support local makers. This year, the Heatons Art Trail plan to have more studios, more collective exhibition spaces and more artist-led workshops. Suitable for all ages and all the family, this is one of my favorite events of the year.
This year’s trail will be held on the weekend of 29th & 30th June 2019 – see you there. https://heatonsartstrail.com/
