Saltaire Arts Trail 2016

Saltaire Arts Trail 2016 leaflet


Open Houses

Our famous Open Houses challenge the
concept of art galleries. Residents and local
artists across Saltaire village open up their
Grade II listed homes, letting you enjoy
contemporary art in an intimate, domestic
setting, whilst getting a glimpse of life behind
the doors of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Open Houses Trail showcases a wide
range of contemporary art by both local artists
and artists selected from across the UK. The
Arts Trail provides a unique chance to see their
work, meet them and in most cases the art will
be available to buy or commission.
Full details of the Open Houses will be
published in our Trail Guide.

Sat 28 May - Mon 30 May

Exhibitions, Special
Events & Workshops

Alongside the Open Houses and Makers Fair,
the weekend is packed with a programme of
exhibitions, workshops and activities. Each year
we commission new exhibitions, installations
and performances from artists responding to
Saltaire’s unique spaces and heritage.
If you are feeling inspired by all of this
creativity, there are plenty of chances to get
involved and try your hand, with free and
fun drop-in arts activities for all the family
throughout the weekend. We offer free taster
sessions and demonstrations in a wide range
of art and crafts practice, as well as bookable
artist-led workshops in subjects such as
photography, textiles, drawing and printmaking.

not exist. At it’s heart is the world-famous Salts
Mill, converted from a textile mill to an elegant
gallery, shopping and restaurant complex and
home to one of the largest collections of David
Hockney’s art.
