Our gallery Siop//Shop is changing…

From mid-January 2021, the space will relaunch as Maker Space – an accessible studio where artists, makers and designers from all backgrounds will develop their practices with a window onto the world.

We are keen to make traditional and contemporary creative practices visible.

We will continue to sell work from a broad spectrum of applied artists in our new display cabinets in Ty Pawb’s main entrance.

Residency Opportunity 

Maker Space residency opportunities are for artists and makers of all kinds; designers, socially engaged practitioners, artists and craftspeople are invited to apply. 

Timeframe: 4 months during April – July; August – November; December – March 2022

Maker Space: The 48 sq. metre space is situated opposite the galleries in Tŷ Pawb and has a large window open onto the main entrance. Makers will be able to showcase their practice to a wider audience.  The space is equipped for digital presentations and we will offer promotion through our social platforms. There will be opportunity for mounting exhibitions and developing activity such as talks and masterclasses. 

Over the course of the residency, the maker would also be offered paid opportunities to lead up to six public activity sessions in Lle Celf Ddefnyddiol, our Useful Art Space.

Materials: We will provide a materials budget of up to £500. 

Support includes: Marketing and publicity; access to mentoring/coaching sessions.

Tŷ Pawb typically has a footfall of 50,000 (pre covid) so opportunities to sell whilst in the space are encouraged.
