Besides the exhibitions, the gallery organizes events all-year-round and is always looking for new artists to showcase!

Children and adults are all welcome to come and make these one-of-a-kind items.

The store has at least three areas where you can use your creativity but to go during the weekends it’s best to book in advance!
