Art Trail Approaching

Accessible Artists in All Corners of the Borders and Beyond!

In workshops, homes and village halls throughout the West (Friday 31 to Sunday 2 Sept) and the East (Friday 6 to Sunday 8 Sept). You can meet Crossing Borders artists and makers, see their work and learn about their practices, have a blether, try your hand in some workshops and indulge in a little quality retail activity if you choose.
Many makers work in comparative isolation and it's REALLY NICE to get to talk with interested people, so do venture out and see what's going on across the region. 
You can download your guide here or pick up a printed copy in lots of locations.

At the Roberts' venues - W11 and W12 - you can enjoy coffee and cake while blethering, and in Tart HQ I will invite you to add some paper leaves to my Tree of Life. It's looking a little wintery at the moment with bare branches and I would love it to be smothered with leaves by Sunday night!

I received a lovely present last weekend - a vintage Huntley and Palmers box full of salvaged buttons and buckles. There are some very dated shapes and styles which makes them all the more fascinating, of course!
 The box lid is a work of art in itself.
 Do drop in next weekend; we'd be delighted to see you. (And it would save us eating all the cake ourselves...)
