Silverdale and Arnside Art and Craft Trail
I first joined this trail as an artist in 2014. I had a stand in the village of Silverdale, in the local Hotel which is The Silverdale Hotel. It was a good spot for visitors to see the artwork and also stop for a lunch break. The advertising featured one of my paintings that year (see left image). The Trail is still as popular as ever. This year they are holding the Silverdale and Arnside Art and Craft Trail between the 26th and the 28th June 2020. The villages of Silverdale and Arnside host this hugely popular and well-established three day art event over the last weekend in June. With exhibitors welcoming visitors into their homes, studios and exhibitions to view and purchase their work. They can also participate in a number of expertly run workshops.
The Trail is thought to be the largest of its kind in Lancashire and attracts over 90 exhibitors. Many of whom are inspired by the scenery and wildlife of the AONB.
General Information for Exhibitors, Hosts and Visitors
The Trail is a community event, organised by volunteers encouraging “ownership” by all the participants.
Exhibitors and others work co-operatively, contributing to tasks and sharing their knowledge in order to positively promote and support this Art and Craft event.
The Trail aims to encourage creativity within the community, promote and showcase the work of amateurs and professionals within the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The aim is to bring a wide range of arts and crafts within everyone’s experience.
Anyone who creates their own work can apply to be an exhibitor. We also welcome interest from individuals wishing to do demonstrations and workshops. Resident exhibitors tend to locate their own exhibition venue, be it home, studio or workshop. The public venue space is shared between residents and guests in order to provide variety and interest.
Silverdale and Arnside Art and Craft Trail 2020, 26 – 28 June
The organisers are very much looking forward to SAACT 2020. This year’s trail will see the launch of their Emerging Artist Program and a brand-new venue for their Outdoor Art Trail, as well as new and returning exhibitors.
