With an emphasis on high-quality and diversity our Craft & Design Shop is the ideal place to find distinctive gifts and decorative items unlike any you might find on the high-street.

Visitors will find an array of unique and hand crafted wares, including jewellery, prints and homeware alongside ceramics, glass and accessories. We also stock items for children and specialist Art & Craft publications plus a selection of distinctive greetings cards.

Staff are available to answer questions about the artists and makers we supply in the shop and we can also provide printed information on the artists – their inspirations and processes – so you can find out more about the person behind the piece.

Artists in stock include: Su Blackwell, Abbott & Ellwood, Petal Anderson, Julia Linstead, Claire Armitage, Debbie Barber, Rebecca Killen, Angela Pointon, David Pantling, Ruth Green, Sarah Ibrahim, Kate Rhodes, Leoma Drew, Nicola Becci, Rob Whelpton, Melanie Tomlinson and Hilke Mackintyre among many others.

Our Craft & Design Shop, in conjunction with the gallery’s Exhibition Programme, provides an additional opportunity to actively promote and support the work of local, regional and national contemporary craft makers and artists.

It’s worth remembering that the artworks exhibited at the Chapel Gallery and our Contemporary Craft Shop can be bought through Own Art, the Arts Council England’s 0% interest purchasing scheme.

Before visiting, please call to check the availability of any pieces you see on this site.

Own Art is a national initiative that makes buying contemporary art and craft affordable by providing interest-free loans for the purchase of original work.

All loans are subject to status
