New venture for Ilkley-based designer-maker Chris Tribe

Ilkley-based designer and maker Chris Tribe will be taking part in his first Ilkley Art Trail later this year. The event, which runs from 9 – 13 October, provides a showcase for the many artists, designers and artisans who work in the historic Yorkshire town. Chris is pleased to have been chosen to take part in the event as the standard is high – submissions faced a judging panel which included Professor Ann Sumner, formerly Director of Birmingham Museums Trust, and Gemma Yates(from the Curatorial team of Hepworth Wakefield.
Last year’s Art Trail was a very successful event, with a footfall of 4,000 and sales totalling in the region of £20,000. This year’s should be an even bigger event, as it is timed to coincide with the prestigious and popular Ilkley Literature Festival.
Chris will be exhibiting in a dedicated gallery space adjacent to his workshop at The Cornmill, Railway Road, Ilkley.
