Waveney Valley Sculpture Trail
at Raveningham

A trail of sculptures and site-specific artwork will lead visitors to an idyllic site in the Waveney Valley this summer.

The fourth Waveney Valley Sculpture Trail will host the work of more than 50 artists on a three-acre site of hidden paths, romantic groves and secretive corners at the Raveningham Centre near Beccles.

Organised by Waveney & Blyth Arts, many established artists such as Vanessa Pooley, Liz McGowan, Gordon Senior, Patrick Elder, Simon Griffiths and Meg Amsden will be joined by up and coming artists taking part for the first time.

The trail will feature site-specific work, 3-D constructions and sculpture throughout the site including textile works, bronze sculpture, ceramics and a sound installation.

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

The group has put a number of assistance schemes in place to ensure as many people as possible can enjoy the trail. There will be a pre-recorded audio guide to the Sculpture Trail, a portable hearing loop for workshops and a British Sign Language interpreted Curator’s Walk.

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 Hobbies.

The trail is open from Friday, August 18 until Sunday, September 17 2017 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.

Some of the trail is wheelchair accessible.

Well behaved dogs are allowed on a lead.
