TONG TO TOLSTA
OPEN STUDIOS/ART TRAIL
Our Tong to Tolsta event involved a group of 12 talented artists and makers and took place on two consecutive weekends in July 2021.
Six days of art exploration starting at Tong Hall, where several artists shared the space, and continuing down to Tolsta to discover individual studios. A brochure and map gave detailed information of each studio venue to visit and it offered our amazingly talented members the chance to showcase their work, meet new people and sell their arts and crafts.
It is hoped that OSH art trails will become a regular event each year and will give a boost to the creative residents of the island who have had a tough time during the restrictions of Covid 19.
Each venue had the necessary health and safety measures required for visitors to meet the artists safely and we hope that you enjoyed your OSH experience.
The enthusiasm from everyone was really great.
The planning was a challenge this year, particularly as restrictions prevented us from meeting as a group but we hope that the next event will be less cumbersome and that we can have an active management group to deal with the organisation.
