We're delighted to announce that all the artists taking up residency in the Shed Space exhibition have been confirmed!
The shed installation in the Gallery will become a 'making space', where members of the public can come in on a Friday or Saturday to see a designer-maker at work on their specialist craft. Each artist will also run a £5 workshop on their Saturday, when anyone can have a go.
