Five Waveney artists are collaborating on a new Easterly Artists’ Trail, offering visitors an opportunity to visit their studios and see them at work.

Lisa Hurcum, one of the artists taking part, said: “There is a huge reservoir of artistic talent in north east Suffolk outside the known centres, but many people don’t hear about it.
