Alchemy Gallery

About Alchemy

The Alchemy Gallery is part of Craft Arena, an independent textile art studio, gallery and shop owned and managed by Denise Gannon, herself a textile artist.

Craft Arena aims to support artists and to promote, encourage and foster art in the community. As part of that philosophy we offer dedicated gally space to individuals, groups and cooperatives to promote and sell their work.

We have over 30 square metres of hanging space with lighting covering the majority of the hanging area. Glass cabinets are available to showcase more delicate pieces and tables for exhibiting sketch books and documentation are provided giving an intimate, flexible area to maximise the impact of your work. Video and slideshow presentation is also available.

We encourage monthly exhibitions, and Alchemy can be hired from as little as one week or for as long as required, subject to availability

Launch Event

Why not have a private view or artist in residence event to launch your exhibition? Daytime or evening events are available. Ask us for more details.

Specialist Workshops

We are happy to make our workshop area available to exhibitors who wish to host their own associated workshops or demonstrations.


We offer discounts to various Guilds and Associations. Alternatively, exhibitors may be able to offset s proportion of the cost of gallery hire by holding a workshop for us during their exhibition.
