The Chichester Art Trail is one of the largest, longest and most comprehensive in the whole area! There is something to see for everyone, and its great fun too!
It is held over the weekends of : 30th April, 1st, 2nd May (Bank holiday) and 7th, 8th May. Most venues are open from 10.30-5.30pm.
There are 172 artists exhibiting at 114 venues across the whole area!
Your idea of Art may also change over these days too!
What can you see on the Trail? Here are some of the art modalities, but the added bonus is you go through our wonderful English countryside too – so its a full experience!
Sculpture – huge garden-size models, ceramics, stone and wood carving, driftwood creations and everything in between.
Textiles – anything from rugs to “pictures in thread”, silk scarfs, clothing all in beautiful colours.
Paper crafts – intricate cutouts, cards and little models.
Glass working – bowls, ornaments, wind hangers etc.
Wordworking – and wood turning, wood burning too!
Jewellery making – in silver, beadwork, gold, and a host of other mediums – bespoke items for a special occasion or everyday wear.
Printmaking – various textiles and uses.
Photography – with or without computer enhanced design too.
Metal working – and there is more too!

I LOVE these weekends – you can come and go as you please. There is no set order in which to see things, but you WILL need the trail brochure! The local artists skill is wonderful to see.
