Trail Blazing

Pallet_Horse Head

We had a great time in the sun opening up for the E17 Art Trail. There were activities to get everyone making from yo yo’s to horse headed steel coat hooks, and a chance to swing in the sunshine under Will Cruickshank’s fabulous horse box bar. Not to mention the opening night of our ‘Take a Mallet to a Pallet’ exhibition, which is now open and runs until the 20th July.

And visitors to all three of the Blackhorse Trek venues (Blackhorse Lane Studios, Made by Ore & Blackhorse Workshop) picked up a different component at each venue to combine into an award winning rosette for going the distance!


And finally time for an espresso martini and the chance to bask in a glorious summer evening.
