Access to a unique design collection

We are committed to sharing this remarkable collection with the public, and welcome visits from groups and individuals.   The Stradling Gallery on the ground floor is open to the public on Wednesdays and some Saturdays. Visits can also be booked on other days by appointment to see the upper galleries and reserve collection.  We encourage research activity and engagement at all levels.

We are currently working with a number of educational institutions across the region including BA Art History and BA Applied Arts undergraduates and Foundation Diploma students from Bristol School of Art. Since 2016 second year ceramics degree students from Cardiff School of Art and Design have taken part in projects making work in response to pieces chosen from the Collection which in 2016 culminated in a beautifully produced on-line catalogue published by issuu. We are also working with several local schools.

•    The Stradling Gallery is open to the public on Wednesdays and some Saturdays. 10.00am to 4.00pm.

•    Access to the rest of the Collection for visiting groups or for research purposes is by appointment (allow two weeks’ notice if possible).  To book please get in contact – details on the left of the page.
