Welcome to the Secret Severn Art Trail!
Friday 8th to Sunday 17th September 2017 - 10am to 5pm daily
There’s a lot of talented artists in the Ironbridge Gorge area and we want to show you what we’ve been up to…
As artists we just want to spend as much time as possible being creative. On our own we’re not good at showing off our work, but in a group the infectious enthusiasm spreads encouraging each other to shine.
Our Art trail began because there isn’t one here. They’re all over the country, and we wanted our own to shout about our local talents. We wan t to give you a weekend of inspiration and encourage you to get creative.
Come and be inspired by ceramics, glass, illustrations, jewellery, paintings, photography, prints, textiles and more.
