We strive to provide a platform for local artists and crafters to sell their works and although our shop is small it is an Aladdin’s cave. We sell Sanquhar pattern knitwear produced by Sanquhar Pattern Designs, an initiative to revitalise a local cottage industry centred around the Sanquhar knitwear. We are always on the look out for new artists and craftspeople and we encourage those who would like to sell their goods in our shop to submit their work for consideration.
Visit our café for a great coffee and enjoy our range snacks, soup and cakes.
We have a theatre that can seat a maximum of 50 individuals, suitable for small productions, performances and talks. It is equipped with a projector, for presentations and is used as a community cinema. The seats are retractable, so the space can be opened up for other uses.
The theatre doubles as a gallery and we have further exhibition space throughout the building. We generally have many exhibitions throughout the year both by amateur and professional alike and we are always pleased to hear from groups or individuals who would like to consider the space for future exhibitions.
We have two craft rooms, which our local community arts and crafts groups use on a weekly basis. The larger of the two rooms has kiln for pottery and a potter’s wheel. The smaller of the two rooms is an ideal space for meetings.
