A FRESH LOOK FOR 2019
Our freshly-enhanced-for-2019 Artisan Shop features the new #Gondola display island (with its four quadrants combined as one, following on from the two lengthways pairs mode deployed for the Christmas Emporium) in a new layout to enhance the wide range of excellent handcrafted wares made by a significant cross-section of local Artisans & Makers.
SUPPORTING ARTISTS & MAKERS
As part of our service to local and resident creative practitioners and artists, we provide a convenient outlet for their work in our Artisan Shop, which is situated on the right as you enter the Upper Gallery from the Main Entrance lobby (off Abbey Street). Unlike most shops we retain only 25% of the retail prices of the handmade goods on offer, such that each designer-maker or artist receives a full 75%, which reflects on the time-consuming nature of their work, aids their sustainability, and gives a welcome boost to any of our start-up practitioners attempting to establish their name.
Our range of unique products and unusual gifts includes affordable, hand-crafted, high quality silver jewellery, ceramics, prints, paintings, amongst many other witty, unexpected and attractive items. Some of our current top sellers are the following local practitioners: Anya Brooksbank / AG47 / Benedicte O’Connell / Lynn Knight / Lusie Haggis / Journey / Olga Taylor / Mike Palmer / Barabara Wiggins / Lindsay Wilkinson / Elvis & Kresse / Sue Black / Annie Capp / Charlotte Baker / Khoamahom / Seviyor / Jan Lewis (Raspberry Studio) / Yvonne Rigby (CKJ Artisan).
