30 April to 2 May 2022
While in lockdown I vowed that as soon as we were allowed out, I would make every day count and get out as much as I could! In January I decided to apply to the Saltaire Arts Trail and I got accepted! This Friday I will be travelling to Saltaire by train with my art in tow (it’s going to be interesting squeezing it all in). The arts trail is in it’s 12th year and takes place in the UNESCO World Heritage site. Saltaire is near Leeds in Yorkshire. I visited in February and took lots of photos of the beautiful architecture and views. I fell in love with Salts Mill especially the art exhibitions and the amazing shop there!
I will be showing my work at the Little Crafts House from 10am-4pm daily throughout the 3 day weekend. I will be sharing the space (location 6) with several other artists.

“Saltaire Arts Trail is a community arts event held annually in May. It offers an imaginative visual arts programme, celebrating the village’s rich heritage, and offering opportunities to both emerging and established artists.
The Arts Trail prides itself in reaching out to new audiences and making art accessible to all by using imaginative venues – the internationally recognised Salts Mill, public buildings, the homes of Saltaire residents and outdoor spaces around Saltaire, to display visual art outside of traditional settings, as well as delivering new exhibitions and commissions.
We aim to make each Saltaire Arts Trail new and fresh, with commissioned contemporary artwork and with inclusive activities for all.”https://saltaireinspired.org.uk/events/saltaire-arts-trail/
I have created some new art inspired by the local area and look forward to sharing those pieces this weekend.
