For those of you in the know it will come as no surprise that I now have a space in the wonderful Gloucestershire Arts and Crafts Centre!
If you haven’t discovered it yet then I urge you to pop in and have a look around – whatever your taste there’s bound to be something that catches your eye, from paintings and photography to jewellery and ceramics and much more besides.
What makes it so special though is that all of the items are produced in Gloucestershire by local independent makers and artists. It’s a wonderful opportunity to be able to meet some of the people too as the shop is manned by the makers themselves. The shop also holds regular classes and workshops ranging from photography and painting to jewellery making and willow work.
I’d love to write about all of the makers and artists, but there are so many! Here are just a few – selected purely on the basis that I happened to have their business cards to hand!
The shop can be found at 4 College Street, Gloucester, GL1 2NE (on the approach to the Cathedral) and is open Monday – Saturday 10am – 5pm. Pop by and say ‘Hi’ soon.
You can contact the shop by phone on 01452 307161 or by email on firstname.lastname@example.org
