Arts & Crafts

Our aim is to support emerging and established artists from all backgrounds by providing opportunities for them to develop their practice, and create exciting and engaging work. 

Since our recent refurbishment the Malt Cross is now home to the Henderson Gallery and a new workshop space that are both available to hire.

We run regular art classes and workshops based in our Heritage Arts and Crafts space from our weekly life drawing classes to one off workshops in ceramics, letterpress printing, weaving, fine art and more. All our upcoming events are listed on our Workshops page.

Our gallery space has hosted a variety of exhibitions over the past year including a collection of new work from our Artist in Residence Oliver Lovley and a short exhibition of Melton Original Portraits tintype photography. All the details of our past and presents exhibitions can be found on our Gallery Hire & Exhibitions page.

“Beautiful building and good variety of drinks”

“A really nice place to have a drink, as the interior and architecture of the building is lovely. The drinks are a decent price and there is often something happening here such as live music, exhibitions etc so it's always nice to come and see what's on.”
