Today (Sunday April 30th) was the first day of the trail, its on again all day tomorrow. There's 140 artists exhibiting in so many different venues across the town centre, the town is alive with creativity and community.
I've got lots of my altered books with me and lots of photographs and prints. I've had some more greetings cards printed of my photographs, including some of local woodland, of the Belper starling murmeration and of my altered books.
I've had some wonderful conversations today with people visiting Oxfam - chats about stories, old books, local woodland, the Belper starlings and so much more. Huge thanks to everyone who came and stopped to chat.
If you get a chance the trail is REALLY worth checking out - and the arts trail is just the very start of Belper Arts Festival, there's lots more going on throughout May, including the Woollen Woods, various gigs and Belper Open Houses. Its a wonderful town, such a buzz of genuine community and creativity.
