Courtyard Arts’ shop and cafe is open Tuesday to Saturday, 10 am to 4 pm
Gift Shop – beautiful art, jewellery and cards
When you are searching for something special for friends or family, it’s amazing how stressful it can be to find something out of the ordinary.
Now all that stress disappears! Our small-but-beautiful shop features handcrafted work made by local artists and makers, alongside a wide selection of artist-designed cards.
Browse and discover a range of jewellery, ceramics, textiles, prints, fused glass and more.
Treat a friend or be selfish and treat yourself!
We have a wide range of items including ear-rings, bracelets, necklaces and brooches to suit a wide range of pockets.
Our jewellery features the work of a number of local artists and silversmiths, including Sarah Lamb, Carolyn White, Su Shippin and Tai Christie.
The perfect gift for any occasion – birthdays, Christmas, or just any time when you want to treat someone special!
Ceramics have been appreciated in households around the world since the beginning of time.
Here at the Courtyard you will find a wide range of exquisite ceramic items, some artistic some practical.
We have work for sale by leading ceramicists including Nicky Roberson, Barry Jones and Aila Simpson.
We also stock some wonderful tableware, in particular a range of cups, mugs, plates and bowls in support of St Elizabeth’s at Perry Green.
Glassware is bewitching and is becoming increasingly popular with artists and the public alike.
The glassware in our shop includes work by artists including Marion Hewitt, Gloria MacArthur and Amanda German.
You can choose from a wide range of artists and styles, with work including fused glass, stand-alone pieces and framed work.
Courtyard Arts carries a large range of fine art greetings cards.
We have a particular interest in supporting the local artistic community and our range features the work of local artists, many of whom have long standing relationships with the Courtyard.
We also stock cards from many of the UK’s leading art card publishers, which feature the work of many internationally-renowned artists, including Eric Ravillious, Shiela Robinson and Edward Bawden.
Our outdoor Courtyard cafe makes the perfect sun trap to enjoy a freshly-brewed tea or coffee.
Choose from our selection of delicious homemade cakes and slices – all made by Courtyard volunteers.
We have one visitor whose son always insists on his favourite flapjack here after his class on a Friday – who can blame him, they’re delicious!
Some of our cakes are also dairy free or vegan (please ask a steward when you visit)!
“Something caught my eye…”
Glynnis Bainbridge, one of Courtyard’s stewards, shares a personal favourite available to buy in the Courtyard Shop…
Poppies on the Beach – original framed linocut by Kate Heiss. Framed, £60.
“I love the simplicity of the print and the delightful colour combination”, says Glynnis. We agree, Kate is a real talent and definitely one to watch – some of her work is now published by the fine art card publisher, Art Angels.
