The buildings that make up the complex have recently been renovated to bring them back to life. Having researched some of the history of the area it appears that the site used to be home to the town slaughterhouse and local butchers in the early 1900s. Some work is underway hopefully supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund to find out more. If you're local and know anything about the history feel free to pop in and say hello and tell me all about it.
In the coming weeks the gallery will be up and running which will feature some of my work along with other designer-makers. Even though I've just moved in I'm already busy with new stock and have lots of ideas to get the workshop looking ship shape.
Until next time
