In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, Sprout is obviously closed, however we have a beautiful window display of artwork by Valerie Taylor, feltwork by Jacqueline Merry Bernard and glass creations by Ann Funston, to at least brighten up your day.
Work will be available to buy, so do look out for the title of the work and contact us at:

We will also still be having our Secret Postcard Event - hopefully this summer - and we’d like all our artists and the whole community to join in and create beautiful artworks on an A6 postcard (any piece of card or thick paper size 148x105mm) to raise vital funds.
The completed postcards can be popped into the Sprout postbox outside our door at a later date (please make sure they are in a weatherproof envelope to keep your artwork safe as we do not know when we will be able to collect them).

As a not-for-profit self-funding organisation, we are worried about the next few weeks and months. Membership plays a vital role in supporting Sprout, enabling us to pay rent, utilities and insurance, so please consider becoming a member:
Membership of Sprout costs just £10 per year for individuals or £15 per year for artists.
Download a form at and pay by bank-transfer.

To our current members, a huge thank you for your continued support.
Please follow us on social media for ideas to get your creative juices flowing!
Wishing you all well.
