    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.

    The Motley Theatrette is an intimate black box theatre buried deep in the heart of our little Bauhaus. In its standard arrangement it can seat up to 27 people, however, all the seats are removable. Currently, it is available to book for rehearsals with the prices listed below.
