Arts & Crafts Trail

Our annual Arts and Crafts Trail is a weekend packed with creativity, in venues throughout the historic town of Whithorn. Shops, studios, galleries, barns and houses host artists and makers to display their work. The Trail is a showcase of creative talent from across the Machars and beyond. Visitors can see demonstrations by many of the artists and makers. The exhibitions display textiles, ceramics, wood craft, painting, print making, jewellery, glass work, photography and we also host a number of artisan food-makers with tasty treats on offer.

We also host the ‘Five More’ exhibition, in the Ninian Gallery at the Whithorn Story Visitor Centre. This exhibition runs throughout July and showcases a mix of creative work by 5 invited artists.

Why not make a day of it and take time to enjoy your own ‘Machars Moment’ in Whithorn? A warm welcome awaits you.
