Explore our picturesque West Yorkshire village, nosey in open studios and enjoy the creative talents of our local artists. Now in our 2nd year, the artwalk takes place on Saturday 27th April 10-4pm and details can be found on our website where you'll find a map and details of everyone taking part in this 1st of two artwalks this year. We have kiln fused glass  engraving and textiles, wrought iron, photography, fine art, ceramics and even a publisher.

On the day there will be a tombola with a chance to win some handmade loveliness from a makers piece or a homemade cake to a voucher to spend on the day /for a class to attend and create something yourself.  You can be sure of a warm Yorkshire welcome and proceeds from the tombola and refreshments all go to a local good cause, this year being the local riding for disabled stables.

Come and say hello!
