Three artists from the Trawden area have organised a new and exciting art trail in the village, casting a spotlight on the work produced by a range of local talents.


Taking place on the 21st and 22nd October, the trail - organised by Catherine Wells, Kate Sutcliffe, and Susan Salter - will feature a collection of very talented artists working from home or on a small scale who deserve to be highlighted as hidden talents struggling to be seen by the masses.

"We hunted high in the trees and low under bushes to find the shy beings beavering away, often alone in the village and surrounding areas," said Catherine. "If the event is a success, we're hoping to continue offering support in various forms to artists including future pop-up exhibitions, workshops and events."

The pieces will include contributions from 25 fantastic artists including painters, a felter, a willow weaver, and a potter, who will all be in the thick of the first ever Trawden Art Trail.

Starting in the Community Centre then working around various locations in the village, the trail will take place from 10am to 4pm. With refreshments available at the Community Centre, admission will be permitted by Trail Guide only and costs just £1 each.

Admission is available from the Heritage Centre in Barrowford, the Rock Cafe & Nail Bar in Trawden, at Noyna cafe in Fouldridge, and on the door on the day.
