Bristol gallery of craft and design
The Stradling Collection is a remarkable collection of C20th and C21st design and applied arts. It contains almost 2000 pieces of ceramics, glass, furniture and decorative objects.
The gallery features changing displays from the Collection, or artworks created through our learning programme; sometimes our exhibitions feature both.
Entry is free but as a charity donations are very welcome. View opening hours and visitor information.
To see the full collection, we offer curator-led tours which are chargeable and need to be booked in advance as space is limited and tours book up quickly.
