At Ripley we have an ever changing gallery. Every calendar month we have different makers and artists work on display. Come and visit us every month and see what we have on offer!
In January we have a whole month devoted to textiles - don't miss it. On the 23rd we have a meet the maker day. Come and see examples of felt making and fabric printing.
In February we are devoting all our walls to Nikky Corker. We all need some colour in this drab month - her pictures tend to make people smile so do come by and cheer yourself up!
At RHS Garden Harlow Carr we run a series of events over the year in The Old Bath House. Please note that we are based at the bottom of the gardens and the RHS charge entry. Please see their website for further details : – www.rhs.org.uk/gardens/harlow-carr/whats-on
