Artists from the Aylsham area are set to welcome visitors into their studios from this weekend.

Makers and creators in and around the town will open their studio doors in September and October as part of one of the most successful Open Studios schemes in the country.

One of four art trails is in the Aylsham area featuring the work of Cherry Linda Cooke (textiles), Philip de Paolo (furniture and wood carving), Mavy Burden (woven fabrics), Susan Bell (landscapes, animals, flowers), Vivienne Head (designer jewellery), Jean Hawke (landscapes and buildings), and Mary Newton (landscape, seascape, portraits).

Artist Susan Bell will be one of those opening her studio for the event.

Ros Dixon, Norfolk Open Studios administrator, said: “It’s exciting to realise that Norfolk Open Studios is returning this year. After last year’s event was cancelled it feels particularly special, as well as it being the first time the scheme will take place in the autumn.

“We hope that the opportunity for visitors to be out and about exploring Norfolk at this magical time of the year, and meeting artists and seeing amazing artwork, will continue to offer much enjoyment and inspiration to people, as Opens Studios always has.”

Norfolk Open Studios will take place between September 25 and October 10.
