Saltaire Arts Trail - part 2

Saltaire Arts Trail is really one not to miss - get it in your diary for next year.

The town was heaving with artists, kids decorating ducks and building dens, visitors gasping at the range of work on show, and even the chap at the petrol station was delighted with the weekend sales

Here's a taster.......

A strange flock, raft, paddle or whatever of ducks

These are a few of the 6500 visitors......

and one of the famous Saltaire lions having been yarn bombed!

Here's a small selection of the diverse range of art and craft at the Makers' Fair in Victoria Hall.

Helen Button makes beautiful porcelain tableware

Leigh Shepherd creates unique jewellery made using upcycled tiles finished with resin

Julia Batley at Teazle handmade, makes gorgeous leather handbags lined with liberty fabrics and other accessories

Dear Emma Designs produces a wonderful range of products - all include her original applique and freehand embroidery designs with vintage fabrics

Jo Whitehead at Glassprimitif creates kiln fused glass tableware, jewellery and gifts in vibrant and bold colours

and here's one of our stand with me sorting out the salt spoons......

and here's one of Sue making an exhibition of herself......again!

A huge thanks to the organisers of the event, especially Paula Perrins at Wychury whose beautiful unique hand crafted textiles are inspired by the natural world...

and thanks to all the brave souls who opened their houses to hoards of art lovers.

A reminder, put the 24th - 27th May 2013 in your diary now!
