In 2017 the Handmade in Cygnet Open Studio Art Trail will coincide with 10 Days on the Island.

Local artists and makers will fling open the doors of their studios and workshops and invite you to view their work. They are looking forward to meeting you and welcome the opportunity to chat about their work practices and creative lives.

You can view the trail via the interactive trail map here or the artists & makers listings by location number, medium and name here.

A printed brochure, including map and participant info, will be available from various outlets in March 2017.

Cygnet and surrounds is a thriving and growing creative community with an increasing reputation for vibrant arts & crafts, food, wine and local growers. Handmade in Cygnet offers visitors (even regulars!) the opportunity to discover Cygnet's creative output and the 'hidden gem' nooks and crannies that inspire the area's artists and makers. Click here for a sneak preview of the inspiring views enjoyed from their studios and workshops...which you'll enjoy on the trail!

What previous visitors have said...

"THANK YOU so much for organising Handmade in Cygnet. We, four of us, have just finished 5 hours on this trail. WOW! We were so impressed with everything we saw, and made many purchases... but, unfortunately, we only managed 7 studios. I guess, that was due to talking too much to the artist/craft people. Not to forget the stunning scenery made our day too! What a brilliant day, we can' t stop talking about who we met and what we saw. PLEASE, have it as an annual event." - Kaye
"I wish to thank you for this event - it was just wonderful, brilliantly organised and such a delight to participate in. In my opinion it was a wonderful success, I loved it. Thank you." - Deborah
We gratefully acknowledge the support of:
