So Artrageous is on the Move.

May 26th, 2017

From June 2nd So Artrageous will be at a new location. I will be joining the other artists at Hatherleigh House, Union Road West, Abergavenny NP7 7RL. It is rather tucked away in the courtyard behind Abergavenny Electrics.

Although the premises is smaller it has lots of natural light and a lovely feature fireplace, more in keeping with the vintage & handmade range. It is part of the old Abergavenny workhouse
Workshops will continue to be held at regular intervals but you are always welcome to drop in for a crafty chat and a cup of tea. If you want to have a go at a particular craft, let me know and I will try and arrange a workshop or one to one tuition if you prefer.
