The warm and beautifully restored Haybarn at Beechenhill, an organic farm nestled on the south facing hill over Ilam, hosts six Peak District Artisans for Derbyshire Open Arts 2016.
Members taking part are Michéla Griffith – Fine Art Photography, Janet Mayled – Fine Art and Textiles, Newfields Gallery – Ceramics and Woodcarving, Sue Prince – Contemporary Folk Art, Tim Rose – Fine Art, and Vivien Wilson – Botanical Art.
The artists undertake commissions and are delighted to encourage visitors to discover their inspiration and motivations.
The Artist’s Café offers a delicious range of homemade cakes, teas, coffee and soft drinks. Money raised from sales of refreshments will be donated to Wetton and Alstonefield First Responders.
Please note: If you are using a Sat Nav put in ‘Ilam Moor Lane’. If you use our postcode DE6 2BD, it stretches for about a mile, so when your Sat Nav tells you that you have reached your destination keep going for another half a mile and we are the next farm drive on the left (if you are travelling in a northerly direction).
A selection of Peak District Artisans will take part in this year’s Derbyshire Open Arts.
Bank Holiday Weekend 28th, 29th and 30th May
Opening hours 10.00am to 5.00pm unless otherwise stated in individual entries.
Derbyshire Open Arts are a friendly, not for profit arts organisation that holds an arts event across Derbyshire each year.
Artists stage the event in all sorts of venues and it’s a great opportunity for the public to meet them, get to know about their work, and purchase works direct from the artist. The event is free to the general public and is held over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend each year.
Full-colour brochures will be available free to the public each April in readiness for our event. There will also be a copy on their website.

The Belper Arts Festival is now in its fourth year, the festival is growing and has already made its mark on Derbyshire’s cultural calendar. With Belper overflowing with artistic talent it really needed an interactive trail of creativity which we will aim to grow to be a key Derbyshire event.
2016 will see the 3rd Belper Arts Festival Trail and will build on the success of this years event. Last May we had 94 artists and makers in 41 venues. And you can see many of the artists in the Gallery.
We have had loads of positive feedback and some great improvement opportunities which we are putting in place. So 2016 will see more artists, more venues, more music, more happening on the streets between venues and more food venues. The brochure will remain at £3 for visitors which is great value.
This will be an evolving website as we build up towards the Art Trail so please look out for the latest news and also watch the artists come on board.
The Belper Arts Trail has been established to help promote the growth of local artists, engage with the community and enhance Belper’s reputation as a beautiful place to visit.
Through this our aim is to contribute to the local economy and build community spirit.
