Virtual Trail – information for Artists

Please note: we are now FULL for artists and makers.

To artists already registered: you will need to be on Facebook to participate, but it’s not necessary to have your own website or online shop. You can join in on Facebook as an individual or through a Facebook business page as you prefer. You will also need a Paypal account or online banking or some other way for people to pay you online securely.

To set up your own Facebook “business” page, go to

How to Create a Facebook Business Page in 7 Easy Steps

All artists will need to commit to share the group on their Facebook pages, and invite all their social media contacts to join. The more people in the group, the more all our work is seen (and hopefully bought!).

At the start of October we will create a Facebook group for West Bristol Virtual Arts Trail. All artists registered on the Virtual Arts Trail will be invited to join it and share it with their Facebook contacts who can request to be added to the group. We will also post a link to the group on our website and publicise it through local media. Anyone who is interested in the event is welcome to join the group

Between 11am-5pm on Sat 17 and Sun 18 October artists and makers can post photos of their work on the group alongside details of how to purchase it. Anyone interested in buying something can comment on a post and the artist will then arrange payment and delivery with them. Or posts may direct customers to artists’ online shops if they have them.

The group will then stay open for a couple of weeks after the event to give visitors who may have been unable to view it over the weekend the chance to see work too.
