Photos from the fabulous North Bristol Art Trail 2013!

It is always a pleasure to take part in the North Bristol Art’s Trail and this year did not disappoint! I hope you enjoy a snap-shot of the weekend’s event below. There will a more detailed write up in the next Bishopston Matters. If you have some photos or experiences you would like to share about the trail please e-mail [email protected] and I will be happy to feature them.

Created by the Sefton Park School Knitting club.

This year the charity' Bike Back Bristol' based in Horfield Prison

Bike Back combined fantastic art with bike donations and refurbished bike sales. See more at

It was wonderful to see the Gloucester Road buzzing with people on the trail. It is a special weekend indeed.

Fig enjoyed a busy weekend.

Room 212's owner Sarah Thorp busy on the trail.

Artist Pip Gilman busy sketching outside Room 212 on the Gloucester Road. I was lucky enough to receive a free sketch!

St Bart's, a popular venue to experience art as well as live music and home made cakes!

Great to see the community enjoying St Bart's

The Ashley Down Infants have created a fabulous collage of Gromits in the style of Pointillism. Look out for more of their creative artwork on the front cover and within the December issue of Bishopston Matters (you can download a copy on this website).

Many children enjoyed getting 'crafty' within the Horfield Baptist Church venue.

Lighting Up also displayed some of the great work they have created with sufferers of dementia. This collaboration between North Bristol Artists and dementia sufferers has proved a to be a huge success.

Who could resist one of these scrummy cakes! Refreshments at Horfield Baptist Church were put on by Fresh Ground Cafe that is open for the public to enjoy Monday to Friday.

Good to see that downstairs is now open at Artemis Jewellery and Gifts.

St Michael's and All Angels was another lovely venue to visit.

Always a pleasure to see one of the original North Bristol Artists Cath Read, displaying at a new venue this year.

A great opportunity to stock up on cards.
