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
7 October to 16 November 2014
As the country commemorates the First World War we both remember the past and look to the future.
Local artists have been working with groups across the county, exploring themes of remembrance to create a series of special artworks for this exhibition.
The exhibition will grow throughout October as additional work created during BIG DRAW in libraries, community venues and Rufford is added. More information is available on the Arts news page.
