Secret Severn Art Trail back for eighth year


Secret Severn Art trail, now in its eighth year, will welcome 40 talented creatives to this year’s trail, to run from 7-17 September.

Footprint Gallery in Jackfield, which is at the heart of the trail, will be home to an exciting range of local artists and craftspeople throughout the event. This contemporary arts space has recently undergone a renovation and hosted a hugely successful Printmaker’s Fair in July.

The Gallery is located in the heart of historic Jackfield, famously home to Jackfield Tile Museum which will also be open throughout the trail for visitors to learn how natural resources met amazing skills, artistry and craft in a 19th century creative hub. The on-site café will be open from 10am to 4pm daily.

The resident artists include Jan Park (paintings and textiles), Rod Sheppard (printmaker), Cat Noble (multi-media artist), Sue Chadwick (jewellery designer) and Dylan Hartley (woodwork).

Other studios in the Jackfield, Ironbridge and Broseley will open their doors for the duration of the trail, giving visitors a chance to meet the artists and discover their work first-hand. Amongst these will be more painters, illustrators, sculptors, printmakers, photographers, potters and jewellery designers.

The full list of featured artists is available on the Secret Severn Art website
