They will based around journeys that will take us from design to digital, 2-d to 3-d, conceptual to skills-based contemporary art and will explore a host of maker practices within the city.

Each guided walk will be led by one of Sheffield’s leading artists or makers and will follow a theme, or themes set by your guide. Each walk will be easily paced, and will offer plenty of time between venues to discuss the art you have seen and to make new friends. Some walks will end with optional studio visits to the artist/guides studio with a further opportunity to gain insights into the daily life and work of our talented creatives.

The second walk, on the theme of City Life, will be led by Sarah Villeneau, a ceramicist based at Exchange Place, Yorkshire Artspace. Meeting at Sheffield Institute of Arts, the walk with take in Jo Rucklidge, Joanne Lee, Frazer Hudson’s exhibition ‘Utter Rubbish‘ at the Post Hall; 35 Chapel Walk Gallery’s exhibition ‘Sheffield: A Relationship to Buildings’ and Andrew Hunt’s ‘Portraits from the Market’ at Yorkshire Artspace Persistence Works.
