40 Years in the Making

There really is no place like home in this year’s Autumn/Winter offering from the gallery in its 40th anniversary year.  Celebrated makers and their highly sought after collectable pieces will be displayed in our homely setting highlighting the very best in unique conversation pieces for your home.  We’ll also be introducing you to some makers we’ve never worked with before, giving you the opportunity to explore unique talents in the world of contemporary craft today.

Established in 1982, our aim is to take you on a journey to experience the talent, skill, originality and beauty of contemporary craft made by craftspeople based in the UK today. 

For the past 40 years our seasonal exhibition programme has been bringing together the very best of handmade contemporary jewellery, ceramics, limited edition prints, glass, wood, textiles and works in mixed media exploring specific themes. We also provide an ever changing selection of makers who support and enrich each main exhibition. We support new and emerging makers as well as more established makers and over our remarkably rich history we have introduced thousands of talented individuals to visitors to the vibrant city of Leeds. Everything on display is for sale so we're a retail space as well as a gallery environment for you to take a mindful moment away from daily life.

With work by over 300 designers on display at any one time you're sure to find what you're looking for; whether it be for inspiration, gift buying or simply to while away a peaceful lunch hour.

Ellul Ceramics is delighted to have been invited to be part of the 40 Years in the Making exhibition.
