THIS year's Black Dog Arts gardens art trail takes place next weekend in Bungay.

There are six gardens taking part and you will need a poster map to show you where they are.

The trail starts at what was the British Oak pub in Bardolph Road and finishes at the Old Tannery in Outney Road and it is accessed by going over Cock Bridge at the end of Earsham Street and following the track to the rear of the garden.

All in all, the trail makes for an enjoyable stroll round Bungay town and reveals some garden gems you never knew were there.

17 Black Dog Artists spent some of their spring mornings and afternoons in their chosen garden producing original work inspired by it to be displayed in it.

Jan Dungey from Black Dog Arts said “The range of work is staggering, from oil, watercolour, acrylic and mixed media paintings in all shapes and sizes by Carolyn Moulton, Paul Zawadski, Penny Brooke, John Hunt, Di McKenna, Max McKenna, Cherryl Thomas, Margaret Sheppard, Graham Pattrick, Karen Leah, Lindsay Jolly and Hilary Mullock, to jewel-like, brightly coloured fused glass works by Carolyn Reeder, to innovative photographic works by Kerry Heaney, to raku fired stoneware by Elsie Lidzey and sculpture by Max Butcher to an embroidered picture of the Old Tannery garden by Mary Walker.”

Also, new for this year, each garden contains craftworks inspired by gardens. These craftworks were made at a series of six different workshops led by acclaimed artists.

Alison Kramarchuk's knitted and crocheted gold, silver and other wire jewellery inspired one of the workshops and her brooches, earrings and other jewellery will be shown in the first garden.

The second garden will display the results of Georgina Johnson's felt workshop and the third will display printmaking designs from Sarah Cannell's teaching.

Handmade garden art books made at Mary Walker's workshop are exhibited in the fourth garden and silk scarves dyed using plants, flowers and other natural materials, made in Marian Williams workshop can be found in the fifth garden.

Jenny Goater's wire mesh sculptures of birds, such as owls and herons are in display in the last garden

You can pick up a poster map from Bungay Library in Wharton Street, or from shops, businesses and community buildings throughout the town.

The art trail takes place on both Saturday and Sunday, July 3 and 4 from noon to 4pm.
