Celebrating 25 years from 18 August to 2 September 2018.
Artwave is the annual festival of artists and makers from Lewes, Seaford, Newhaven and surrounding villages. Artwave is open to all, which makes it an inclusive, accessible and diverse experience for those taking part and visiting.
153 Open Houses
Follow the trails around one of the UK's most beautiful counties with over 150 artists studios, homes, galleries and workshops exhibiting. This year we have a diverse range of practitioners showing jewellery, textiles, metalwork, ceramics, glass, craft, furniture, illustration, painting and printmaking. All venues are FREE to visit during opening Artwave opening times. You can read the brochure online or download a PDF.
In celebration of our 25th Anniversary we have also programmed some special colour themed events, including Family Workshops, Art in Nature walks and Art and Film Three Colour Trilogy.
