EXHIBITIONS

Each month we hold a solo exhibition from a contemporary British Artist. Our artists work across a variety of disciplines including paint, illustration, photography, ceramics and sculpture 

Art is pointless if it doesn’t cause a reaction, if it doesn’t please, if it doesn’t shock. Our exhibitions will be curated to excite the viewer and make them look at art in a totally different way
— Julian Bovis, Curator, The Weavers Factory

COURSES
