Since Victorian times, the Isle of Wight has been the home of many artists and writers from Tennyson to Keates who have found inspiration from the stunning coastline and countryside. Today, the Isle of Wight is a wealth of local artisans producing some unique crafts.
With large craft centres where you can watch hands-on making, to the many galleries dotted around the Island, the local art scene is thriving so you are sure to pick up something memorable from your holiday. Many of our local events are dedicated to the arts from the Open Studios in July to the Ventnor Fringe in August.
