Drawing is key to our creativity and it lies at the core of the making process. Our new space will will be somewhere you’ll be able to unlock drawing’s potential for yourself, through free exhibitions showcasing and supporting artists at all stages of their careers.

Our dedicated learning space will offer year-round activities for children, families, schools and the wider community, and our unique Library & Research centre will be open for everyone to explore contemporary drawing.

We are close to making this a reality, but we cannot do this without your help.

Drawing Room’s mission is to champion the unlimited potential of drawing to help us understand ourselves, each other and our evolving world.

Drawing Room’s new permanent home will be a welcoming, open-door hive of creative activity — both an international hub for the latest thinking around drawing and a neighbourhood gallery that uses drawing to connect artists and local audiences.

Our new home will allow us to sustain a year-round exhibition and artist-led events and projects programme, free at the point of delivery for families, school pupils, teachers, and community groups, encouraging artists and visitors alike to use drawing to experiment, make ambitious artworks and take risks.

Drawing Room is a division of Tannery Arts Ltd, an independent non-profit organisation comprising a studio provider, Tannery Arts, and a public gallery, Drawing Room. Tannery Arts provides studio space, support and resources for artists. Drawing Room presents a curated exhibition and engagement programme with an international perspective and is the UK and European Centre for the exploration, appreciation and expression of drawing. Together a site and catalyst for ideas, making and display; bringing the processes of art and artists to a wider public.
