Furzedown Book Swap @ Sprout Arts

Starting 5th March 2020, Sprout Arts will be hosting a book swap for Furzedown. Pop in whenever Sprout is open and see what’s on the bookshelf – thanks to some initial donations, there will be a mix of fiction and non-fiction, children’s and adults’ books. Take your pick from literary fiction, thrillers, spy fiction, biographies, romance, picture books, wildlife books…

The bookshelf will be open for business starting on World Book Day on Thursday 5th March. Bring a book to swap or pick something you like the look of and return it for someone else when you’re finished. There will also be bookmarks available if you’d like to leave a message about a particular book you’re leaving. Plus, you get to say ‘Hi’ to the nice people in Sprout and see what’s on the walls!

You can keep up to date with what’s on the shelves on Twitter @furzebookswap

Have you heard about the exciting Sprout 'Artist in Residence' opportunity?

This will be our 2nd residency and we are keen to encourage Sprout Artist members to apply for the chance to use Sprout gallery as their own studio space between 4th January - 1st February 2020.

The residency is open to artists of all ages and backgrounds with a minimum of 3 years experience and who live in - or have a connection to south west London.

It is an opportunity for an artist, or a pair of artists, to use the Sprout gallery space as their studio for 4 weeks' including an end of residency exhibition.


A residency can provide many opportunities: a chance to change direction, to reflect on your practice, and experiment with new ideas, or it could be a time to consolidate an idea which has eluded you because you haven't had time to focus on it.


We welcome all enquiries and encourage you to arrange to visit the gallery space, and discuss any questions you may have.

Applications need to be received by Monday 11th November at 5pm and an interview will be arranged in the week beginning 18th November 2019.

NB As the gallery is in a residential area the space is available 7 days a week but in the daytime only.
