Sladers Yard

Contemporary British Art, Furniture & Craft Gallery. Licensed Café. Live Evening Events.

Sladers Yard is one of the most ambitious art galleries in the South West, showing contemporary British art, handmade furniture and designer craft.  Changing art exhibitions are accompanied by ceramics, sculpture, Petter Southall’s woodwork, jewellery, glassware, leather and textiles by leading British designer craftspeople. Housed in an historic Georgian rope warehouse, with pillared galleries and flower-filled courtyard, it is five minutes walk from the beach and harbour in West Bay, Dorset.

The award-winning Sladers Yard Licensed Café is open serving delicious food every day throughout the year. Regular and varied live evening events with dinners are a highlight. The venue is also available for catered private parties and weddings.

‘Visit this wonderful place…’  Financial Times, How to Spend It, 2012 (read the full article here)

‘This artist-owned gallery, situated in an 18th century warehouse near the harbour, has become a focal point for the county’s creatives since it opened in 2006.’ FT 2011

‘An idyllic gallery in West Bay… Everything looks exciting in the sunlight that floods in, especially [Petter Southall's] pieces whose generous curves seem to have come straight out of the boat yard.’ Paul Atterbury (Antiques Roadshow) in BBC Homes & Antiques ‘Antiques of the Future’

‘This splendid gallery… Its unreconstructed corn-scented timber interior makes an elegant setting…’ The Week

‘Simple and beautiful’ Mary Miers, Country Life

    3 of us visited last Monday on our way from a dance weekend in Torquay and were very impressed with Petter’s furniture and also the artwork. The soup was great and I brought some delicious homemade Apple cake home with me.
    I will treat myself to a mirror or something as I have just moved to a new modern house near the sea. I will definitely pay you a visit in Spring if possible.
    Thankyou for your hospitality.

    Your drop-down list of artists goes off the bottom of my screen, otherwise I think that it is a nice site with interesting artists.

      Thanks for your comment and praise for the website. I am sorry you have had trouble seeing all the artists in the drop-down list. If you cannot scroll with any kind of wheel or scrolling device, you should be able to rest your cursor on Artists and move down with the arrow keys. WordPress websites should fit all kinds of screens so I am interested to know if this isn’t the case on your screen. Thanks, Anna

    Ian Smith Trio superb on Sunday, accessible poetry and creamy jazz. More of the same. Well done! Do you have contact details for them?

    Visited Sladers Yard recently. Petter Southall”s furniture absolutely amazing – the design and craftmanship. Seen nothing so inspiring since the John Makepeace exhibition.
