BEYOND THE GALLERY
We remain a business at the heart of a flourishing creative community.
We thrive on working in partnership and collaborating with others.
We work alongside charities, local & national groups & schools to host events, tour
exhibitions and lead workshops in the gallery and beyond.
Our community library of donated art books is free to use.
We make most local delivery and exhibition tours via our cargo e-bike. We are a donation point for the Rhondda Foodbank & offer a free entry community drop-in space for visitors.
In early 2023 we were part of the WINTER WELCOME CENTRE network in partnership with the Friends of Wattstown Memorial Park with the support of RCTCBC and volunteers. November 2023 - March 2024 our MAKE IT LATE Thursday sessions are a chance to pop in and get creative or be sociable with others.
ART IN A BOX TOUR
We are touring David Hurn's South Wales Valleys: COLOUR to non-art venues Nov '23 - Jan '24.
WORKSHOPS, CLASSES & TOURS
ON - SITE
We lead workshops in drawing, woodworking, wood-turning and furniture making for community groups, schools and individuals - bookable on a half day or full day basis or on longer term initiatives.
OFF - SITE
We offer bespoke art & design experiences & workshops.
We were winners of The Big Draw Festival Community, Participatory and Libraries Award 2018 for resident artist Gayle Rogers' workshop
with Ynyshir Primary (supported by RCT Arts Service). We have led woodworking workshops in libraries and outdoor drawing projects at a local wind farm.
We tour many of our shows to non-art venues via our cargo ebike and public transport whenever possible. We work with artists and writers to share their work with a wider audience locally.
