Arts and Crafts
Somerset Art Weeks is a celebration of the work of around 400 artists, in over 100 venues across the county. The event provides the opportunity for artists and makers, who are eager to get out of their studios and workshops, to explore new ways of working together, often around a particular theme or in response to a particular environment, and present their work in different and sometimes unexpected ways and places. A wide range of media is represented from 3D materials, such as ceramics, textiles, wood, stone, metal and glass, to 2D media such as painting, drawing, photography, digital technology, as well as installations and live/performance art. There is, certainly, something for everybody to see, touch, take part in, have a go or simply watch and enjoy. And, it is all free! www.somersetartworks.org.uk
