Together with my partner Jon O’Connor, a former slaughterhouse which used to service the meat industry in Folkestone has been given a new (and less gory) lease of life.
What was until recently a derelict wooden barn perched at the top of the Bail Steps has been completely rebuilt with a new steel frame clad in traditional timber boarding to provide a studio, gallery and small office space.
You can visit the Woodshed Gallery at weekends and by appointment. Inside, you’ll find Jon working on education projects and me working on art projects in various mediums including drawing, oil on canvas and wood carving.
We have an exhibition of art works, hand-made jewellery, unusual and up-cycled furniture pieces and much more to enjoy.
Come and visit us to see what’s happening!
