For more than 20 years visitors have followed our arts trail in and around the Lune valley, seeking out the studios and work places of artists producing ceramics, paintings, woven/felted textiles, sculpture, lino cuts and creative glass.

Artists will explain how they manage the creative process and some may even provide an informal demonstration of their skills (maybe revealing a few secret techniques on the way)?

Each studio will have a display of current work for visitors to view and to purchase. Should you wish to commission an exclusive piece – just ask! Following the trail will enable you to experience the dramatic limestone landscape of the Lune valley and Three Peaks.

From 3rd-26th May, there will also be an exhibition, featuring recent work by all Trail Members, at the Leck Gallery, where the official launch of the 2018 Lunesdale Arts Trail will take place on 5th May.

If you decide to make a full day (or two) to visit everyone, there are plenty of very good pubs, restaurants and hotels for food and accommodation. We look forward to seeing you.
