The BSpoke16 Arts Trail takes place over the weekend of 16-18 July and promises to offer a fun and creative weekend out for families from across the Bristol region and beyond.
BSpoke16 was created by the creative duo of Catherine Williams Printmaker and Karen Davies, aka Mustard Cuts, who established BSpoke16 to provide an artistic showcase for local creatives to benefit both the makers and community in the local area, providing a safe browsing environment outside the makers’ home.
The first trail last July at the end of the first lockdown was a raging success with artists using all types of media and crafters producing a wide variety of products. The exhibitors could finally display and sell their works to the public with many having no outlets open during the lockdown. Some of the stands had established their businesses through these challenging times and it was a perfect time to test their products’ success.
“With many of my art exhibitions cancelled in 2020, I really appreciated the opportunity to exhibit my artwork, make some sales and promote my art practice and all from my front garden!” said Lisa Malyon of Lisa Maylon Draws. “I welcome the opportunity to meet my neighbours again this year!”
The event this summer has exceeded all expectations and has inspired over 100 talented artists, makers and designers to become what is going to be a fabulous celebration of creative talent. BSpoke16 hopes to draw in customers from local communities as well as those from further afield who appreciate high quality craftsmanship.
