The Willow Gallery is a contemporary art space dedicated to displaying works from both local and international artists. A hub for creativity the Willow is Community Interest not-for-profit gallery, converted from a disused car showroom. We frequently hold workshops, talks, live music, events and exhibitions, bringing together creative individuals from the local community and beyond.
We aim to provide a platform for artists and craft people to promote themselves and their work. Hosting both a craft shop and a cafe, the space provides a family friendly atmosphere where you can relax, chat,work and enjoy the art on display. The gallery regularly holds classes and workshops from in house tutors and guest teachers covering a wide range of art and craft subjects. Past workshops have included life class, sculpting, painting, felt making, photography, jewellery making, willow weaving & printmaking.
