One of our favourite Yorkshire events takes place this weekend. It offers a chance to see some fantastic and affordable art while allowing visitors to take a peep inside some of those lovely Italianate homes in Saltaire.
The Saltaire Arts Trail runs from Saturday May 27 until Monday May 29. The community arts event prides itself in reaching out to new audiences and making art accessible to all by using imaginative venues, including the homes of Saltaire residents who turn their properties into mini galleries.
There’s also a Makers Fair in the village’s Victoria Hall, which is where I intend to do some shopping for my present drawer (dare I mention Christmas?!).
You can buy the 2017 Trail Guide for a £1. The 40 page booklet lists all of the artists, venues and activities in the Saltaire Arts Trail, and includes free access to the Makers Fair in Victoria Hall throughout the weekend. It’s available from Saltaire Visitor Information Centre and Salts Mill.
