A new, sociable space in the gallery where anyone can be an artist.

Take part in self-led craft activities designed by artists and makers, or create your own artwork inspired by what you can see in the Shipley’s collection.

The space includes four large work tables with craft activities ranging from jewellery making to basket weaving, and welcomes children and grown-ups alike to get creative with a range of materials and techniques.
