Kirkstall Art Trail proves a big success – thanks to volunteers!

The first ever Kirkstall Art Trail proved a big success – and is another testament to the heroic volunteers who put on these kind of events.

The weekend’s event proved a big success, featuring 20 artists over 40 venues.

The art was varied to suit most tastes, from painting, sketching, printing, photography, sculpture, textiles, craft and more; and there were workshops for all ages to learn new creative skills and take away their own original art on the day.

It was the brainchild of volunteer and Kirkstall resident Amy Thompson, who wrote here on West Leeds Dispatch about how the original idea came about late last year at a community BBQ in the St Stephen’s Community Garden.

Her efforts come just a week after the magnificent volunteer-led Kirkstall Festival drew more then 20,000 people to the Abbey-based community event.
