Calling local artists, photographers and crafters

There is still time to book a place to show off your art, photography and craft talent at Oakwell Hall and Country Park.

When is the event?

The historic house in Birstall is staging its popular annual Art in the Barn event from Saturday, 12 January, until Sunday, 3 February, followed by a Photography and Craft exhibition from Saturday, 9 February, until Sunday, 3 March.

Both present opportunities to showcase and sell work.

Jennie Hawes, Assistant Heritage Manager at Oakwell Hall explained;

“The added bonus is that exhibitors don’t have to man stalls. They hire a display space and leave the rest to us,”

What exhibits will be there?

Both exhibitions are being staged in the Visitor Centre Barn, next to the car park at the top of Nova Lane, Birstall. Art in the Barn exhibits so far include watercolours, oils, pastels and Giclée prints. Jewellery and textiles will be among items featured in the Photography and Craft Exhibition.

The exhibitions will be open to the public between 11am-4pm Wednesdays to Sundays during their run periods. Both closed Monday and Tuesday.

Want to come along?

Anyone interested in booking a display space, in either event, should contact Jennie Hawes, email: jennie.hawes@kirklees.gov.uk  or telephone 01924 324761.
