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 downstairs at Voluntary Action Orkney (VAO) at 6 Bridge Street, Kirkwall, very near to the Harbour.


We are open Monday, 10 - 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 meet regularly on Saturday mornings at the Art Shop. For details 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 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.
