There are painters, textile artists, ceramicists, glass fusers, illustrators, print makers and vintage collectors on the Made in Whitstable Trail this year.
Starting at Keam’s Yard Studio Gallery on the seafront, the Trail spirals around central Whitstable and then out; and with our final house along the far end of Tankerton Slopes you can take in the Oyster Festival food market on your way.
