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.
Follow the trails around one of the UK's most beautiful counties. Explore over 150 artists studios, homes, galleries and workshops across Lewes, Newhaven, Seaford and the surrounding villages. 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.
Celebrating 25 Years
In celebration of our 25th Anniversary we have also programmed some special colour themed events, including FREE Family Workshops, FREE Colour in Nature Walks, a FREE Talk on the History of Colour and the rare opportunity to see the arthouse classic Three Colour Film Trilogy on the big screen.
Artwave wouldn't be possible without the generosity of our funders and sponsors - thank you to everyone who has contributed this year.
