We’re delighted to welcome Bath Spa University to the 2019 Trail! Join Tim Jollands in the basement gallery at Corsham Court for A Show of Hands, an exhibition of posters and ephemera celebrating the manicule or printer’s fist – expect quirky wordplay, visual puns and decorative joy from letterpress printers across the UK.
In the adjoining Albion Press Room, you can see letterpress in action and print a keepsake on one of the hand presses.
The Peacock Committee would like to say a massive thank you to everyone involved in the 2017 Peacock Arts Trail! We can’t believe the 9 days are over already!
To our artists – a great big thank you for all your hard work and enthusiasm. It takes a huge amount of effort to prepare for an exhibition like this, which we know you do whilst juggling busy lives.
To our visitors – it is wonderful to know that there are so many of you who appreciate the arts! Thank you for visiting in record numbers, and we can’t wait to see some of the results of the workshops and other activities that you were involved in. We hope you will hang on to your brochure as it makes an excellent gift buying guide to support local artists.
Here are a few of our photos from the Trail. Please feel free to share yours with us, especially if you made something fabulous on a workshop.
The wonderful and immensely talented Kathy Hutton has been with the Peacock Arts Trail from the start and this year we were lucky enough to enlist her to the Committee. Not only is she a brilliant printmaker, she is also a dab hand at social media and wrote the social media guides on our Artist Resources page. Oh, and she makes amazing cake! A definite must visit venue!
