THE DARTMOOR ARTISAN PROJECT

Suzy is the founder of The Dartmoor Artisan Trail, an arts, craft and food trail, set up in 2017 to champion Dartmoor National Park's rich creative heritage.

The first of its kind in the UK, the trail has been featured on BBC Countryfile - the UK's most-watched television programme, with nine million viewers. The project has also been widely acclaimed in the national press, including The Guardian, Lonely Planet Magazine and The Daily Telegraph, who named the trail one of the UK's best travel experiences of 2017. 

Suzy's project started life as a photography exhibition of Dartmoor's artisans. In April 2017, her portraits were displayed as solo exhibitions at the prestigious Devon Guild of Craftsmen in Bovey Tracey, Devon, and they were Dartmoor National Park's 2017 summer exhibition. 

Due to the huge public interest in her photographs, Suzy decided to build on the project and set up The Dartmoor Artisan Trail. This gives visitors the chance to glimpse behind the studio walls of the moor's creative community, watch demonstrations, take hands-on workshops and buy work directly from the maker. All the photographs were taken by Suzy, expect where indicated.
