We’re very pleased to be back to our regular time of year – the last two weekends of May – after two years of national disruption. Although plans were very well advanced, we had to cancel the Trail in 2020 but we did hold two mini Trails in 2021 (Spring and Autumn). We’ve returned this year, rejuvenated and with plenty of new work to show, to our well-established dates around the May bank holiday period. Eighteen members will be opening their studios from 10.00 am to 5.00 pm each day over the two weekends of 21st/22nd and 28th/29th May. Unfortunately, because of the Platinum Jubilee this year, we are unable to include what would have been the Bank Holiday Monday in our plans for 2022. The official bank holiday has been moved to Thursday 2nd June in order to extend the long Jubilee weekend.
HWAT Chair, Malcolm Cudmore, says
“We’re delighted to welcome new member – Nikki Dedman – to the Trail. Last autumn, she was a guest artist in another member’s studio and her work attracted great interest. Her unique wire sculptures add an extra dimension to the already wide range of creative works made by HWAT members. I’m particularly pleased to be back on the Trail myself after a two year absence due to Covid restrictions and (last year) a studio that was still being restored following flood damage over Christmas 2020.
We hope that our visitors will be intrigued and entranced by the new work made by HWAT members over the last year. We look forward to welcoming both regular and new visitors and to inviting them to see our work in the very place it was made.
Paintings (traditional and contemporary, figurative and abstract), drawings, sculptures, hand-made prints, textile art and mixed media pieces. Something to suit all interests and tastes.
Once again, we are very grateful for the support of our principal sponsor Durrants. The 2022 map and Trail information will be published very soon. Each branch of Durrants will have a stock of the maps. Thanks also to our advertisers – Imperial Wine in Bungay and The Old King’s Head in Brockdish.
A fully interactive Google Map of the Trail will be available through the HWAT website. Anyone with a smart phone will be able to obtain accurate directions to any studio from any location, at any point on their journey. Precise locations will also be given through the What Three Words app.”
