Painting and Crafts in Craven in the Yorkshire Dales

Monday 27 June 2011

Painting and Crafts in Craven

Craven has a lot of great little independent shops, selling haberdashery, wool, textiles and creative  supplies. Many provide workshops too. Pick up the Creative Directory from a Tourist Information Centre or download it from this website.

For inspiration go to the changing exhibitions throughout the year at the following venues – but check their websites for opening hours:

Other visual arts treats include

North Yorkshire Open Studios in June, when artists open their studios and you
can meet the artists, look at how they work, buy direct, and enjoy the scenery
too

Grassington Festival in June, which always includes a visual arts element as well as great
performances

Art in the Pen held in August in Skipton’s cattle market where artists transform cattle
pens into mini contemporary art galleries
