Makers' Fair

Just to let you know that the Makers' fair application forms are now available to download from the website.

Last year was a fantastic event, our most successful yet, with sales over the two days totalling around £9,000. It's a popular event with the general public and with the makers who take part.

If you hand-make 3-d objects, whether its jewellery, textiles, wood, books, or something completely different, we'd love to hear from you...

Exciting times for the Arts Trail

As some of you may or may not know, we have been asking some questions about the future of the Arts Trail.

The first fledgling Arts Trail grew out of the Saltaire Festival in 2007. Since then our relationship with the Festival has been an extremely fruitful one and we are proud to have been working in close partnership with it for these last three years. Now in our fourth year we feel that there is enormous potential for the Arts Trail to develop into one of the most exciting and engaging visual arts events in the region showcasing the myriad ways that the visual arts can transform our lives. So, from 2011, the Arts Trail will be moving to May (the exact date to be confirmed) to become an event in its own right.

In May 2011, our aim will be to fill every nook and cranny in Saltaire with art, partnering with key organisations from around West Yorkshire to bring you an event we hope will inspire you.

So, this year, in September, we will have a core Arts Trail bringing you the best of the Arts Trail and letting you know what we are planning for May 2011. It's an exciting time and we are looking forward to a bright and colourful future.
