The event will be a chance to meet the artists to talk about their work, as well as buying artwork directly from them.
All the artists will be offering original work for sale from their workshops, gardens and studios; many also produce prints and cards.
Formed in 2020 as an artists’ co-operative, North Norfolk Studios comprises more than 100 artists and makers, showcasing the wide-ranging ability and talent residing in this part of the country.
The artists have been organised into a number of trails, which this year covers an area from Castle Acre and Fakenham to Potter Heigham and Acle, as well as along the coast from Burnham Market to Happisburgh.
There will be a wide diversity of work to discover: paintings, prints, drawing, woodcraft, glass, metalwork, textiles, ceramics, sculpture, jewellery, mixed media, photography and furniture.
Most studios are open daily from 10 am – 5 pm, although some are closed during the week. Details of participating artists, opening times and trail maps can be found on the NNS website.
A brochure will be available from early May in local libraries, shops and tourist offices. Download the Reepham & District Art Trail map HERE.
There will also be a taster exhibition showing the work of a selection of artists participating in the Reepham and District Art Trail at the Old Workshop Gallery, The Street, Corpusty NR11 6QP, from Wednesday 1 May to Sunday 2 June. This will be an opportunity to preview some of the work and plan your studio visits.
The Corpusty gallery will be open from 10 am – 5 pm, Wednesday to Saturday – and every day throughout the open studios period.
