We are host to a range of classes and creative events throughout the year. If you can't find something you fancy, let us know and we will see what we can do!
We offer a range of opportunities to work, sell, teach, shop and volunteer with us
You can shop, donate items or just come and volunteer in our craft remnant shop, our idea of craft heaven
Rent our ground floor by the hour to run classes, workshops or host events and meetings.
Base yourself at Nest either as a long term studio resident or just as and when you need some space to work.
An opportunity for artists and makers not resident with us to promote and sell their work
For when the kitchen table just isn’t enough or you just want to be creative in the company of others, why not come and work with us for a while!
Onsite kilns available to fire your glass and ceramics
We have a range of volunteering opportunities on offer. For as little as a couple of hours you could help out with the remnant shop, show visitors around or take sales from the gift shop, and in return you can use our facilities for free!
Create at NEST is a non profit Social Enterprise run in partnership by Rachel Bower and Tracie Dick.
Our aim is to provide affordable creative space for working, teaching or meetings for the local community. Our open plan facilities encourage collaboration and inspiration within a supportive, friendly and social environment.
NEST came about when Rachel was looking for new studio premises, having outgrown her kitchen and sheds. Tracie was looking for an alternative career after redundancy.
The original plan for NEST has evolved from feedback and ideas from our visitors, plus the large footfall past the window inspired us to have our our own wee shop and to rent out a window for local makers to promote and sell their work.
We have created a Craft Remnant Shop on the first floor selling everything from fabric to picture frames, wool to card making supplies and so much more! And we are always looking for donations and volunteers to help out.
There are 4 kilns on site belonging to Rachel Bower, who provides on site kiln technician services to anyone wishing to fire their work, just contact us for further details.
NEST always welcomes visitors for workshops, to browse our gift shop and craft remnant shop or just to have a look around. The kettle is always on!
