Front Room Arts Trail, Totterdown

Engineers always plan ahead!
Document the date

The 19th Front Room Arts Trail will be taking place between 15th-17th November 2019.

We are generating an engineering theme this year and we will calculate a weekend of entertainment, fun and interesting art as Bristol’s longest running and largest arts trail.

Engineering is the art and science of nuts and bolts.

So sign up now with wrench sets and sketch pads at the ready. 

Eng.Brunnel Quack requires your 1st draft by the 30th September. If you all ready have your blueprints in order we are presenting an Early Duck Deal at a Steal of £30 until 31st Aug. 

As from the 1st of September the recalculated price will be £35.

“The human foot is a masterpiece of engineering and a work of art.” ― Leonardo da Vinci

The Front Room Arts is a free annual arts event in the Totterdown area of South Bristol. Our aim is to highlight our wealth of local talent as we invite you into their studio, back bedroom or front room – wherever the art happens.

The Trail is a unique opportunity to talk to artists about their work, materials and creative process.
Most artists on the Trail exhibit a significant body of work with much being available to purchase.
Our artists cover every conceivable medium, craft and skill, so there’s no shortage of incredible art to explore.

It is a unique chance for visitors to peek behind the scenes, experience this normally hidden world and get to chat to the artists and crafts people about their creative process.
Seeing an artist in action, chatting over a cup tea amongst the paints, clay and saw-dust gives you a real insight into the artistic process.

The best way to delve into the Front Room world is to download our app (Apple, Google Play) or to pick up a paper map from the Oxford or the Banana Boat, then simply follow your feet.
Most venues are open 10am to 6pm, Saturday and Sunday.
In addition, some are open for a Friday night preview from 7pm to 9pm. Please check on individual venues for details.

To help you around the Totterdown Art Trail you can use our online map or our app.

We’d love to see the Trail from your perspective – use #totterdownarttrail on any social media channel to join in.
