Saturday 29th April to Monday 1st May 2017

A long weekend of exhibitions and demonstrations by professional artists and makers in multiple venues throughout the village of Ancrum, where you can meet and purchase directly from the artisans.

See and support the wealth of local creative talent.

Thank-you to all the artists and makers who took part this year, the village of Ancrum for making us welcome, and all the 800+ visitors who came to see us.


During September 2012 a group of artists and makers held a very successful ‘Crossing Borders’ Art Trail exhibition in Ancrum village.

Building on that success, a group of participants proposed a new initiative, a long weekend of Art@Ancrum, in the hope it might build into an annual event, supported by the people of the village.craft_and_design_month

2017 will be our 5th year.

A selection of professional artists and makers from across the Borders have been invited to participate. Many have taken part before but there are several new names for 2017 and possibly new venues.

Cash for KidsThis year our chosen charity is Cash for Kids, and there will be collection tins around the event, and Courage the Cat, Radio Borders Cash for Kids official mascot might even make an appearance!

 


There is also an exhibition called “Absent Friends” in the Cross Keys
