The home of contemporary craft
Rufford Craft Centre comprises a gallery with a changing programme of exhibitions, Creative Learning Centre and seminar room all housed in the former stable block which dates from the 1660s.
The Craft Centre offers the opportunity to participate in workshops in a variety of art and craft forms through a programme of public creative workshops with professional artists.
We also offer an extensive education and outreach programme for schools and groups. A highlight of our programme is the annual Earth & Fire International Ceramics Fair, which takes over the Abbey grounds at the end of June each year.
Exhibitions, events and workshops
Rufford Art Society: Members’ Biennial Exhibition
Until Sunday 22 March 2015
For almost twenty years this vibrant group of enthusiasts have met at Rufford to explore all types of visual arts in regular artist and member led workshops.
The varied collection of art works on show, produced over the last two years, demonstrates the different interests and skills of the members and their continued enthusiasm for the visual arts.
Much of the work is offered for sale and members will be in the gallery throughout the exhibition to answer any questions and encourage new members.
