HELFA GELF ART TRAIL
Saturday – Sunday – 11 – 5 ( and next weekend too ) – All across the county of Conwy and beyond!
Every weekend this September, forge your own art trail around the area, calling in on painters, sculptors, photographers, jewellery makers, woodworkers, potters, textile workers, glass makers, basket weavers, printers, each one with a highly individual skill. Seeing an artist in action, chatting over a cup tea amongst the paints, clay and saw-dust gives you a real insight into the artistic process. And with over 250 to choose from there’s definitely something for everyone.
Take this great opportunity to hunt down those undiscovered art treasures and see how they’re made – whether you are just curious about what artists and craftspeople do in their studios, or want to start your own collection of interesting artworks bought direct from the makers.
