The Motley bauhaus workshops space


    Not quite commercial gallery, not quite artist run space, The Motley Bauhaus is a new kind of art house. An art, craft and performance centre dedicated to promoting skills based art practices, encouraging intermingling across all disciplines and spreading art like a virus through the community. With a couple of exhibition spaces, workshop space, several studios, a theatre, a podcasting booth and a bar we are providing a space for artists to work, and to share their work and skills with each other the local community and the wider world at large.

    The ethos of the space is derived from the Staatliches Bauhaus school opened in Germany in 1919 which combined art and craft and respected them equally. In that vein we are focused on promoting skills based arts practises and fostering creativity in the wider community by giving a home to artists of any and all disciplines and running various art and craft classes and related activity.

    If you’re an artist then you can apply for our residency program, hire the podcasting booth or apply to put a show on in the theatre.

    If you are an arts therapist you may want to book our workshop space to run your sessions.

    If you are a business then you might want to get in touch to ask us about our corporate team building packages.

    If you are a craft maker you may want to ask about shelf space to sell your wares.

    Our aim is simple; to make work for artists so that they may make art for the world.
