For the last three years, the Saltaire Arts Trail has been proud to have been working alongside the Saltaire Festival. It has been a successful partnership bringing colour and vibrancy to the streets of Saltaire. The Saltaire Arts Trail, as it has grown, has had plans to expand and develop what it offers to become an event in its own right. From this year the Saltaire Arts Trail will move to the bank holiday weekend at the end of May, the dates being May 28th to 30th inclusive.
We have some exciting ideas for the coming year and are looking forward to putting them in place and bringing you a vibrant, high-quality event. As in previous years there will be the popular Makers’ Fair in Victoria Hall and the Open Houses where houses in the village are transformed into unique galleries.
We are now looking for houses in the village to participate in the Open Houses for the May event. This is a unique opportunity to have your walls adorned with beautiful paintings and photography while handcrafted textiles, tableware and ceramics grace the surfaces of your kitchen, sitting room, hall or stairs. We will provide each house with artists and makers, public liability insurance and someone to show you the ropes.
Over the years the whole Arts Trail has been a huge success and with your help we can make it even better. So, if you are interested in opening up your house, would like more details or would like the opportunity to talk to someone who opened their house last year, please email us at email@example.com.
We need to hear from you soon so please do contact us before the end of January!
