Studio Shops

Our studio shops offer visitors the opportunity to watch craftspeople at work and buy directly from them. Our resident makers are happy to discuss your individual requirements to create that special one-off piece. Please telephone the individual makers to confirm opening times or arrange an appointment.

Our Studio Shops are highly sought after spaces. We have a waiting list for interested artists and when a studio becomes vacant, we put out a call using this waiting list and through our website and newsletter. If you want to receive our regular newsletter or to be on our waiting list, add your details to our secure mailing list.
