Stop 13 on the map - Ashmore Arts, 55b Ashmore Road Torquay

Digital map available here.

Pack your trail maps, gumboots and maybe a dinghy too, it’s the Surf Coast Arts Trail weekend! Never been to an Arts Trail, wondering what it even is? The Arts Trail is a weekend long event held on the 10-11 August where the artists and makers of the Surf Coast throw open their studio doors and invite the general public in (ie. YOU GUYS).

This will be my fourth Arts Trail, the first in my new studio! Ashmore Arts is a fabulous place to visit on the trail, you get to visit so many creatives at one stop with 15+ studios as well as visiting artists. Geoffrey Carran (who is also the creator of the beautiful cockatoo on the poster!), Rowena Martinich, Kathryn Junor, Takeawei, Indie Lane Photography, Form Concrete Artisans, Simply Forged and Bombora Custom Furniture just to name a few! PS there will be coffee and food too woo!

I will have my full range of prints - framed and unframed- and greeting cards, upcycled tags, a preview of my online course, colouring in for the kids, paint and play for the adults, some samples and seconds too. It is going to be a super fun weekend rain hail and shine!

This coming weekend, the 12th and 13th of August is the annual Surf Coast Arts Trail. It's a weekend where the local artists and craftspeople throw open their studio doors to the public and invite you in.

My studio is located at Ashmore Arts, stop 22 on the map. Ashmore Arts is a highlight of the whole trail as you get to visit such a large and broad range of artists in one place, including Rowena Martinich, Geoffrey Carran, Takeawei Ceramics, Pete Cromer, Mark Trinham, Bombora Custom Furniture, Glenn Romanis, Glen Hunwick, Nathan Patterson, Kathryn Junor, Simply Forged, Form Concrete Artisans, Leighton Edwards and Metal Monkey Knives.

Last year was my first Arts Trail. I had only had my studio at Ashmore Arts for about a month and I didn't know what to expect. I had such an incredible weekend meeting and chatting with people who had traveled from near and far to visit. I was blown away with the response.

I will have prints, originals, cards, gift wrap and a few other bits and pieces for sale. Eftpos will be available on the day.

Fingers crossed for sunny weather!
