Last Call for Artists & Makers – Barnstaple Arts Festival

Barnstaple Arts Festival

 Calling All Artists and Crafters!

Green Lanes Shopping Centre & The Pannier Market
24th, 25th & 26th May, 10am – 4pm

Due to support from Flourishing Barnstaple, Barnstaple Arts Festival is able to offer artists and makers FREE spaces this year! If you are interested in taking part, please email for details. There are only a few spaces left so please respond as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

On Saturday and Sunday we have two areas in Green Lanes shopping centre to display work, hold demonstrations and join-in sessions with visitors.
All day Saturday, NDA will be organising a Big Draw event in Barnstaple Pannier Market, led by member artist, Ruth Bateman and Sue Gibblet. The event runs from 10am to 40pm. Additional offers of help from NDA members would be welcome to help create a ‘Carnival’ themed, long paper frieze and to chat with the public encouraging them to get creative and generally promote NDA to a wide audience.
On Sunday we have a Pop-up Exhibition/Galleries event in The Pannier Market, where artists and makers are invited to create their own gallery-type spaces. Why not bring a work in progress to open a dialogue with visitors about your inspirations and how your artwork is produced?
Studio KIND. at The Corn Store, will also be open all day with their latest exhibition.
If you feel you are able to offer any help in setting up, handing out festival leaflets, stewarding etc. please
