On the Trail you will be able to see a wide range of crafts and appreciate different approaches to design. Always something new to experience – plus the first hand opportunity of meeting the artist, soaking up the studio and workshop atmosphere as well as enjoying exhibitions curated by the artists.
It is also a wonderful way to buy and own a piece of original handmade work lovingly designed and made.
Look out for the signs to direct you to the studios and exhibitions
Notes for Artists to register
The annual Select Trail / Open Studios event attracts hundreds of visitors and the artists participating report positive feedback and income from sales. The unique high quality brochure is a long term keepsake for future reference and people come from all over the region and UK to visit.
This year the Trail has more artists taking part. You can enjoy textiles, knitted accessories, ceramics, furniture, willow, leatherwork, jewellery, mosaics, book binders in studios and exhibitions that stretch thoughout the Stroud Valleys to Tetbury. You will be able to pick up an Select Trail brochure in March / April from tourist information centres, shops and cafes in Stroud and the surrounding region so you can plan ahead. You will also be able to order a copy - details coming soon.
It is a fantastic way to meet artists, find out more about the ideas behind their work and the techniques they use.
Don’t forget, you can also buy direct from the maker.
