This event is part of the Coastival programme.

Our artists’ work encompasses printmaking, ceramics, book art, painting, paper cuts,  drawing, sculptural installation, sound and digital media. Come and meet our artists  who will be glad to show you their work in the studio environment. Work will be for  sale, so you may be tempted to buy an original work of art or craft directly from  the artist.
