Launch!

And we’re off! Hello 9 days of art art and more art!

We hope artists and art lovers alike have a wonderful week, chatting with fellow enthusiasts, making new friends, and generally celebrating how important it is to be creative in any way you can!

If you’ve not seen it already, do check out our Discover the Trail page which we hope will help you navigate the Trail – links to our exhibitors can be found on this page (or above), along with links to maps, our online brochure and workshops.

Thank you in advance to everyone who visits one or more of our venues – we can assure you that a lot of work goes into getting ready for an exhibition like this and you will be warmly welcomed at every venue you visit. And remember, entry to all venues is completely free.

Enjoy!

Yarnbomb!

You will have probably spotted by now that Corsham has been yarnbombed! Look out for pompoms up trees, ladies flying with balloons & cyril the sausage dog!

This is thanks to the fabulously talented Emma Leith who has been knitting & crocheting like a mad woman all summer! We were very excited to be featured by the Gazette & Herald newspaper, and we thought we’d share a few of our piccies from our adventures on the streets of Corsham…(obviously our identities had to be protected with balaclavas!)
