E17 Art Trail
What a weekend. And still 7 days of trail left. Please tell us about your experiences.

We had a lovely day. Who knew E17 was such a hot bed of creativity! Thank to all the organizers and artists.

PS I think the knitted octopus in a jar was my favourite exhibit!

Top day on the e17 art trail. Made a lino print at the Art House, a tea caddy at the Vestry House, looked at pictures of sea serpents in an old lady's front room, quilts in the William Morris Gallery and photos in a hedge on the way home.

It... is all on for another week

I can't believe there are so many talented people in Walthamstow !! Still so much to see but my favourites so far are Going South (37) and Merry England photographs (89) .... and of course the children's art work at Hedge Fun(d) (26) !! I don't think I have ever chatted to so many people out and about on the streets of Walthamstow before - the trail is really bringing people together and that has to be the best thing about it. Well done to everyone involved.

Had a great time walking round the trail - there is so much talent in the stow.

Great 3-day weekend for us at the Blackhorse Lane Studios! Now we all have free time to go see everything else! I went to Valeria's on Sunday, v nice! Saw the River Lea Pictures I missed from the Beside the Lea show in June and had a lov...ely chat!

Even though it was by mistake it was great to see Cris at the Studios on Sunday! And Morag, too! Oh, I missed the Arty Quiz last night, exhausted... how did it go?

Spent the first weekend of the art trail with aching feet but with a big smile on my face.

We are trying to cover as many of the venues as possible and are asking artists to write us a postcard from the trail to enter into the arteast17 magazine.

We are getting a great response from everyone and hope to have a four page spread showing just how great the trail is and just how many talented and creative people there are living locally.

If you are a part of the trail and would like to add your postcard to the magazine, contact us on editor@arteast17 and we will send you details.

Both Matt and Myself will be pounding the streets again next weekend and so hope to get around the venues we have missed so far. cant wait we love the trail.
