Artists, makers and the community will be brought together as the Capel Makers Trail comes to life again in May. After the trail had to go virtual last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, this year’s event is set to be an explosion of life and colour in the South West arts scene. More than 70 creatives will display their work at five regional community centres and a string of home studios in the Capel Shire across May 21 to 23. Trail coordinator Tracie Walsh said it was amazing to come from a virtual event back to reality. “The community is very excited because the trail brings people together and is something personable that isn’t the same when done virtually,” she said. “It’s an opportunity to embrace the artistically and culturally diverse community in a very inclusive and unique event.” Artist Wayne Harris said his passion for art stemmed from a curiosity for how things work. “The trail is a melting pot of what Capel is becoming,” he said. Visitors can admire artwork, meet the makers, participate in workshops and buy local creations in the heart of the town at Capel Community Centre and the Capel RSL Hall, Peppermint Grove Community Centre, Dalyellup Community Centre, Boyanup South West Rail and Heritage Centre and Boyanup Farmer’s Market.
