Make the Most of A New Walking Trail of Public Sculptures
The natural beauty and wildlife of our coastlines has inspired artists for generations, and continue to ignite the imagination today. In that creative tradition, Create North is supporting the development of a major new walking trail of public sculptures inspired by the coastal bird-life found around Amble.
Created by nationally and internationally renowned artists, these exciting new artworks will be bringing something unique and very special to the area.Installed late last year, the trail artistically showcases the diversity of birdlife found in the local landscape through a range of sculptural, sound / music, text/ poetry and digital technology platform experiences.
As a significant investment in public art in the area, the trail and accompanying activities represents a great, new opportunity for local artists to capitalise on this investment and the national profile that the trail will create.
Come along to our Half Day Workshop - 20 January
Over the course of this workshop you will:
