Who we are

We are a space for artists, artisans and ideas in an eighteenth-century fisherman’s cottage, near the harbour in Whitstable, Kent. We opened our doors in June 2006.

We have two discreet gallery spaces: a magnetic wall which encourages a fluidity to allow works to move around easily, change work on show rapidly, have more experimental shows and introduce new artists—a project space that is open to ideas, and to new, emerging voices. The wall includes a recessed area for 3D work, that allows for all manner of shows and collaborations between artists and makers.

The second space is where we have shows by gallery artists that are more permanent and which tend to consist of framed prints and other works on paper.

Our bookshelf area is another focal point in which we select books from independent and mainstream publishers that give voice to radical writers and subjects that deal with queer politics, women in the arts and environmentalism. As well as this we stock an ever-changing range of books and zines from illustrators, artists and writers.

Our collection reflects our passion for the handmade and the artisanal with a focus on individual creatives—contemporary ceramicists, textile makers and those who work with wood and fibre —working sustainably and using ethical means of production.
