The Punchbowl Trail is a group of local artists who are taking part in this year’s Surrey Artists Open Studios. This is a great opportunity for those keen to have a look behind closed doors to witness the workings of varying art and design studios. The trail enables you to visit four locations in and around the area of Haslemere.

Sarah Manolescue is an observational artist rapidly gaining recognition for her oil paintings produced directly from her chosen subject ‘en plein air’.
