The Beauty of A Creative Space is packing up it’s town centre, pop-up studio space and relocating. This Prototype Projects commission from Round 2, run by Yellow Door Artists is sadly on the move after a new commercial business for the store was found.

For the past three weeks, eight artists have been in residence and using the disused store (that once was home to Burton menswear) as their creative art studio. This vast empty building was re-energised, members of the public could walk in, meet with artists, attend drop-in workshops and view artworks on the first floor that had become a large exhibition space.

A downsized version of this artists in residency project will now move into the Old Beecham’s Bar on Water Street, a new art space that Heart of Glass are developing in partnership with St.Helens College.

Naoise Johnson-Martin and Rhyannon Parry, co-founders of Yellow Door Artists have showcased an appetite and need for flexible spaces for artists to share ideas, work and deliver activities. Heart of Glass is delighted to support them to continue developing their work.

The Beauty of A Creative Space will re-open on Wednesday 23rd September.
