Welcome to the Silverdale and Arnside Art and Craft Trail

22 – 24 June 2018

For one weekend only, come and join nearly 90 artists celebrating and sharing creativity in an Area of Outstanding Beauty.

Wander the paths of Ashmeadow Woods and encounter artworks installed in unusual places, take part in workshops and classes from painting to gilding, encaustic to fused glass. Watch artists practicing their craft, browse and buy unique artworks directly from the maker – all in the stunning location of the two host villages.

Our annual Art Trail is the major event of the year in the area and attracts thousands of returning and happy visitors. With open studios, large group exhibitions, community involvement and many workshops it provides something for everyone.

The Trail attracts an increasing number and high quality of exhibitors every year, many of whom live and work within this extraordinary AONB. Famous for its amazing wildlife, stunning scenery and superb walks, the area is becoming a haven for artists and makers and we are increasingly being tagged the St. Ives of the North!
