WIRE member Susan Coates from the Little Brown Dog Workshop is teaming up with eight Staffordshire Moorlands artists, designers and makers for an exciting new venture. In October 2017 they are opening Gallery Twenty in Getliffe’s Yard in Leek in Staffordshire.
The shop will sell textiles, ceramic and glass, cards; trimmings and a wide range of framed work including prints, paintings and folk art. It will be the perfect place to find distinctive art, gifts and homeware because everything in the store will be made by one of the Gallery Twenty collective.
Lyn Abraham of Caltonberry, who makes porcelain embellishments, jewellery and personalised linen ribbons, told us the group were really excited about the shop, the location and being part of the Leek, ‘Totally Locally’ and Getliffe’s Yard community.
“It’s great to be opening in Leek; the town has lots of lovely independent shops and we’re looking forward to being part of Getliffe’s Yard in particular; it’s got such a creative and sociable atmosphere.”
Gallery Twenty is set to be a special place to choose unique pressies and things for your own home.
Susan said “We’ll be making everything that’s for sale, and if you want to find out a bit about the story behind a piece, you can do that too. we’ll be there for a chat – the artists and makers will also be the staff behind the counter.”
