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.
It's often crossed our minds how little exposure anthropomorphic space travel gets. We considered creating a very niche little club for people who share our concerns, with whom we could meet weekly in church halls, like a sort of Women's Institute with intergalactic ambitions. We haven't got around to making this club yet, but when we do we'll probably ask Caitlin Hinshelwood (www.caitlinhinshelwood.co.uk) to be our leader: she's already designed and hand screen-printed some canvas bags emblazoned with Laika, the first dog in space, which have just arrived in our shop.
Also cheering us up (while rain buckets down outside) is this spacious tote bag (see what we did there?)
We'll probably use it to ferry about our dossier on animal space adventures...
