Welcome to the Harleston & Waveney Art Trail 2010

Welcome to the Harleston & Waveney Art Trail 2010 or HWAT!

Our Art Trail will lead you into the studios and workshops of a collective of more than thirty artists, and through the countryside of the lovely Waveney Valley and its market towns and villages.

All studios are no more than eight miles from Harleston, so you can follow the Trail on foot, by bike, or by car – indeed four bicycles are available for hire from the Swan Hotel in the centre of Harleston. The Trail is now a regular summer fixture with a different guest artist each year, and new studios participating while others take a sabbatical.

We show drawings, paintings, sculpture, printmaking, ceramics, textiles and photography, all to browse or buy – many studios open their gardens as well. Artists will also be showing a selection of work during the Trail at the Harleston Gallery, and at Cork Brick Gallery, Bungay.

There is excellent hotel and B&B accommodation in Harleston, Bungay and elsewhere along the Art Trail (click here for some good places to stay in the Waveney Valley), and a wealth of watering holes, so it’s easy to enjoy a full weekend or longer, on the Art Trail, and meet a wide range of artists and their work.

We look forward to welcoming many new visitors and old friends.
