Shop at the Old Fire Station is stocked with a treasure trove of UK based artists, makers and designers.
We support early to mid-career artists and makers, showing their work alongside more established practitioners. We also develop partnerships with several local education establishments to provide retail opportunities for emerging makers and work with Crisis Skylight to provide training opportunities for homeless people within the arts.
We're open Tuesday – Saturday, 11 - 6.
After graduating this year, Eleanor Connor is launching her new jewellery brand, Sophie Castle, and she'll be bringing it to our new shop! She has celebrated her graduation year with her 'Year of the Rabbit' collection, which consists of a number of silhouette stacking rings which enable the wearer to create a variety of scenes. Alongside the rabbits, there will be a few other treasures, such as my personal favourite - the Mischievous Pendant below...
Eleanor is 'passionate about designing and making pieces which have their roots in the English way of life, she creates jewellery that tells a tale with a light-hearted twist.'
