The fifth Waveney Valley Sculpture Trail will host the work of more than 30 artists on a three-acre site of hidden paths, romantic groves and secretive corners in a little-known site on the edge of the Waveney Valley.

Organised by Waveney & Blyth Arts the event will take place at the Raveningham Centre, ten miles south of Norwich.

Many established artists such as Simon Griffiths, Rob Harries, Gordon Senior, Jim Racine, Patrick Elder and Mike Challis will be joined by up and coming artists taking part for the first time.

Curator Sarah Cannell has encouraged artists to create work in response to the site.

The trail will feature site-specific work with artists working with ceramics, stone, bronze, steel, wood, wool, glass, clay, perspex, marble, MDF, seedheads, resin, aluminium and sound.

A programme of workshops, guided walks, and events will accompany the event, including a curator’s guided tour of the site to give people an insight into how the sculpture trail was created.

A number of assistance schemes are in place including a British Sign Language interpreted Curator’s Walk and a portable hearing loop for workshops and walks.

The Ravenous Café, on site, will be open throughout the trail and will host the exhibition of paintings, prints, textiles and 3-D work by the Harleston & Waveney Art Trail collective.

A pop-up shop will also be selling a selection of the artists’ work.

There are a number of other businesses at the Raveningham Centre including M D Cannell Antiques, Norfolk Rugs, Helen Howes Textile Artist and the History of Advertising Trust.

The trail is open from Friday, August 17 until Sunday, September 16 2018 and is open every day from 10am until 5pm.

Admission is £5 for adults, £4 for members of Waveney and Blyth Arts, under 18s go free. Pay on entry only.

Some of the trail is wheelchair accessible. Well behaved dogs are allowed on a lead.

The trail is part of ‘Celebrate the Waveney & Blyth 2018’, an annual programme
of events that highlight the unique character of the two valleys situated in north
Suffolk and south Norfolk.
