About

Welcome to Walford Mill Education Trust 

 

Walford Mill Education Trust is a registered charity which aims to promote crafts and making through events, classes, and exhibitions and by providing working space for established and emerging makers.


Spring 2019 This spring brings new changes to Walford Mill. The mill, a converted historic watermill in the heart of Wimborne, has been home to Walford Mill Education Trust for over 30 years.

Following the need to seek a more sustainable future, Walford Mill Education trust is changing its commercial focus and will be providing new opportunities for talented, local artists, makers and designers.

The current shop on the ground floor will be replaced by a brand new education space with existing disabled access via a disabled ramp. Artists, schools, touring exhibitors and makers will soon also be able to book unique flexible art exhibition spaces on the ground floor to showcase their art and craft to the public.

Although there is no longer a dedicated shop on-site almost all work on display in the exhibitions and by the makers in their studios is available for purchase, priced to suit all pockets.

Studio rental space will double and the new space will be available for hire on the top floor which will be a welcome opportunity allowing local makers and artists to work and exhibit in East Dorset at competitive rates. Graduates and emerging new makers will also be able to benefit from working alongside like-minded artists enabling them to bring their work to the public eye.


 

For any enquiries regarding maker spaces or exhibiting at Walford Mill please contact resident makers Debby Kirby, Robin Mackenzie or Jen Goodwin. jen@jengoodwinembroidery.com debbykirby@gmail.com robin@robinmackenzie.co.uk
