Here at A’ The Airts we are providing a platform for local artists and crafters to sell their works either in our shop or during exhibitions held in the Clayworth Gallery. Our shop has a wide variety of crafts available, many of which feature the Sanquhar pattern (some items are exclusive to our facility).
We strive to use local crafters and are continually finding new sources. Our well-established project – Sanquhar Pattern Designs – is revitalising the local cottage industry centered around the Sanquhar knitwear. The knitters produce a range of scarves, hats, jumpers, gloves, baby blankets and other items (some seasonal) which we proudly sell in the shop and online.
Our café is a great spot to sit down with a coffee and enjoy our range of snacks, soup and cakes………find out more.
REFURBISHED THEATRE SPACE
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 that the space can be easily opened up for other uses. Tai Chi, Line Dancing, Youth Theatre Group, parties and conferences all use this space.
