For Arts Sake is here to support the creative community in Orkney.
There are a number of different ways we approach this:
The Art & Craft Shop
The Art Shop is now downstairs at Voluntary Action Orkney (VAO) at 6 Bridge Street, Kirkwall, very near to the Harbour.
We are open Monday to Friday 9 - 5 and Saturdays 10 - 4
The shop stocks a huge range of arts and crafts materials and we are happy to source special orders and requests.
Activity sessions for all the community
Taster Sessions, Portrait Group, Spinning Group, Knit & Natter, Needle Felting Group & Patchwork Group meet regularly on Saturday mornings at the Art Shop. For dates of the next sessions see the calendar of events.
News and reviews of local artistic events
The "What's on" page on the website and the notice-board at the Art Shop allow local artists in every medium an opportunity to advertise their exhibitions and courses.
Community Gallery Space
We have now completed our project to provide gallery space for local artists to exhibit and sell their work. For details of our current exhibition see The Gallery page.
So whether you are a regular customer or someone who hasn’t yet found us, we look forward to welcoming you to the Art Shop.
