2018 Artist Trails
Trails are another way in which artists collaborate to enhance visitor experience. Here the artists will open their own studios for the same weekend/s and provide easy to follow maps so that visitors can move comfortably from one artist to the next.
If you want to visit one particular area then following the trail will give you the opportunity to visit the maximum number of artists in one day.
Artists Around Framlingham
The ‘Artists Around Framlingham’ Trail is an eight-mile drive through beautiful, rural Suffolk that takes in five artists and the historic market town of Framlingham, along with various excellent watering holes along the way. It can be approached from the A12 (B1119) or from the direction of Stowmarket on the A1120.
Approaching Earl Soham from the A1120 you will find landscape and portrait painter Allan Williams in an old Mill and Clare Gaylard flameworking glass in a re-purposed barn. Suffolk landscape painter Honor Surie’s studio is a short walk from Framlingham Castle on the B1120. Heading out of Framlingham on the B1119 towards Bruisyard you will find wildlife artist (oil paintings) Becky Munting’s studio, and chairmaker Jim Parson’s workshop in Cransford.
