Artful Ways in Kirkby Stephen

Kirkby Stephen & District Walkers are Welcome, Dawdles walk group is taking part in the Cumbria wide Artful Ways project   . Together with many others, they will be creating a new map of Cumbria showing walking routes between artistic and cultural places, and connections between the wonderful creative people around the county.

There will be two walks firstly, on Thursday 1st July taking a walk around Kirkby Stephen’s Poetry Path when taking your turn to recite one of the poems is almost compulsory. You will be invited to submit a piece of artwork for the website and a touring exhibition or simply enjoy the experience and take your work home. Suggestions might include your poem inspired by the stones or landscape, a photograph or drawing, or you may simply wish to do a crayon rubbing from the stones.

The second walk on Thursday 22 July will be Lady Anne’s Way in Mallerstang from Aisgill to Outhgill and whilst taking in this spectacular landscape will link the artistic delights of The Watercut by Mary Bourne, the first of the Eden Benchmarks and the Andy Goldsworthy, Outhgill Pinfold Cone. Again you will be asked to feel the experience through your own artistic interpretation.

Contact Kirkby Stephen and let them know you would like to come along.
