Here in North Lincolnshire we have a passion for the arts. Inspired by the rich landscape, colourful festivals and the gentle pace of life, many artists have made the area their home.
At Ropewalk Contemporary Art and Craft, on the waterfront at Barton, ropes were once made for the conquest of Everest, but now the gallery is home to high quality craftwork. Over 80 regional and nationally acclaimed artists exhibit here. It's a fantastic place for contemporary ceramics, glassware, textiles, jewellery and watercolours.
20-21 Visual Arts Centre is built around the beautiful St John's Church. The stylish galleries have an inspiring programme of art and craft exhibitions from acclaimed artists. Relax in the cafe and treat yourself to unique hand-made jewellery, cards, prints and glassware in the shop,
Creative workshops are held at both Ropewalk and 20-21 Visual Arts Centre - make new friends as you learn a new skill. These artist-led courses range from life drawing to felt making. Book a weekend break and treat yourself!

Byrom & Steel is situated in the heart of the market town of Brigg, North Lincolnshire and comprises an art gallery, creative workshops, cafe and gift shop.
The company is the vision of long-time friends Ally Byrom, a professional photographer, and Julie Steel, an accomplished artist, who created the space as an outlet for local and national artists of all types.
The exhibitions in the gallery are rotated often to give as many artists the opportunity to display their work as possible. The creative workshops are available to anyone who wishes to learn and a wide variety of artistic, creative and craft workshops are offered at all levels, including photography (beginners, intermediates and advanced), various crafts and many, many painting and drawing techniques.
All ideas are considered if there is something specific people wish to learn. The shop is home to beautiful and unique gifts, sourced worldwide, nationally and locally with serious care being given to offer gifts you'll find hard to purchase anywhere else.
