Promoting the Visual Arts for West Wiltshire

The Cloth Road is a group of artists, formed in 2004 with the purpose of promoting visual arts and artists in Bradford on Avon, Trowbridge, Melksham and the surrounding villages of West Wiltshire.

As part of this promotion of visual arts we organise a series of open studios and galleries for a nine day period every other year.  This provides the public with an opportunity to meet artists, see their work and discover the wide range of visual arts produced in this area and take part in workshops.
