Opening Days

Our usual hours are every Saturday 11am to 4.30pm and we try to get in before 10.30 and are often still there by 5pm if the street is busy. We will also be open Easter Monday 22nd April, as normal on Sat 27th April . In May, to complement Open Studios we will be open Sat 4th, Sun 5th and Mon 6th May, normal hours. Thereafter, we will revert to Saturdays only and there may be a closed day mid May due to other committments.

We aim to post every week on Instagram, so please follow us there where we will give openings and feature some prints every week.

If you have difficulty getting in on Saturdays, give us a call, we are often not far away and can open by arrangement. Similarly, if you see anything on the web you would like to reserve, just let us know

Winner of Rising Star Award in High Street of the Year

Great news that Newport won the Rising Star award in the competition which was sponsored by Visa. The judging team came round on a Tuesday and all businesses made a great effort to promote the town to the judges. Was worth the effort and many thanks to Becky Myles of the Traders Association for all her work in promoting it. The prize was a substantial cheque for use within the community.
