Welcome to our webpage, it is a good place to start if you want to find out about our gallery, Silversides & Friends, or Gill & Rob Silversides, the artists behind the name.
Our landlord has placed the freehold of our building on the open market. This has caused a bit of worry and panic with our regular visitors, but don't worry. It doesn't mean we are closing - our lease will continue with whoever buys the building and adds it to their property portfolio.
Coincidentally we are making some changes to our business, to fit in the opportunities we have had with new clients and commissions, which has meant less time available for the shop and classes. We will be going back to being closed on Tuesdays to allow Gill to travel to our customers. As we haven't had time to make so much stock for the shop we have bought in some new luscious glass from our friends Wayne , Rachel & Liz and more ceramics from Emily, Lavinia and Alan.
As part of national insect week, http://www.nationalinsectweek.co.uk/ we are holding four glass bug making days. Come and make your own glass bugs, real or imaginary Decorate your home with them, or fix fridge magnets or brooch backs to them, and celebrate the diversity of beautiful insect world! (3-5pm Saturdays and Sundays 18/19 and 25/26 June)
