The Workers Gallery is purposefully NOT publically funded so we rely on commissions, sales, hires and Workers Mates to fund the running of the building & the events & exhibitions we hold.


    Being a Workers Mate is the easiest way to support the gallery and it can also be given as a special gift - so why not consider making a friend a mate (we do a special gift certificate for this option) ! 


    For an annual payment of a little as £20 individuals can show their support of the work we do by becoming a Workers Mate. Our mates get special discounts & rates for selected days & events, invitations to talks & VIP events & can opt to receive an Up The Workers limited edition mug too. 

    Mates receive a limited edition UP THE WORKERS mug for £20 (+ £3 for UK postage) and they are mates for 1 calendar year. Plus workers mates receive a workers mate card & a special discounts on a variety of products, exhibition fees and have special access and discounts on sale days.



    Workers Mates as 'family and friend' = 2 adults + 3 children

    For £35 (+£3 UK postage) they receive all the benefits of an individual mate but receive 2 limited edition UP THE WORKERS mugs.



    Lifetime mates receive all the benefits of an individual mate but they tailor-make their own benefits with the Workers Gallery team. This maybe access to workshop space, exhibition space or events space hire. Lifetime mates may decide to support individual artists in a specific way or to 'sponsor' a particular event or project. They may simply wish to support the gallery with a hands-off approach or for a dedication in the name of loved one.

    Please use the contact form to arrange a meeting or to discuss the lifetime mates option.
