Next weekend is the Newbridge Arts Trail followed by the Widcombe Art Trail the following weekend and finally the Bear Flat Artists Open Studios the last weekend of May.
Details and links to all the events are on http://www.bathopenstudios.co.uk/
In only it's 4th year,The Newbridge Arts Trail on Sat 11th and Sun 12th May, and there are over 30 artists participating at around 20 venues in the Newbridge and Lower Weston area of Bath. Work varies from painting, prints and sculpture to ceramics, jewellery and more, with artists exhibiting in their homes, opening their studios and also using local shops, businesses and Newbridge Primary School to display in.
Some artists opening their studios will be demonstrating their techniques and working practices and it's a great opportunity to buy work at very reasonable 'direct from the artist' prices!
Details of the artists, venues and opening times can be seen on the website http://www.newbridgeartstrail.com/ where there is a downloadable map. A paper copy can also be picked up in various places including shops on Chelsea Road, the Art shops, Libraries and Tourist Information in Bath.
Refreshments are available at some venues.
I will have my studio at 1 Old Newbridge Hill open on Saturday and Sunday from 10am -5pm and will have handmade woodcut and lino prints on display, as well as giclee prints and cards. I may demonstrate some printing or may be painting a large animal sculpture!
