We are open on Sunday 11th December 10am-4pm in celebration of the Abergavenny Christmas Food & Drink Fair. 

The creative energy of artists, designers, artisans and chefs enlivens our spaces with innovative, festive works – jewellery, textiles, ceramics, paintings, printmaking and edible creations.

The Chapel will be open all day for breakfast, brunch and lunch. For sale from our larder – Christmas puddings, big festive tarts and cakes (including gluten and dairy free. Put in your orders for Christmas), bottled cordials and ketchups, alcohol infusions, preserves and quince jellies, boxes of membrillo, pastilles, honeycomb and chocolate Valencia almonds. Biodynamic wines, locally brewed craft ales and cider and small batch speciality coffees available.

From the woods, stars and wreaths, balls of mistletoe, berry-laden holly and gilded apples.

There is a children’s corner with books to cherish. Artists’ cards, calendars wrappings (good enough to frame) and of course artists’ materials, box sets for calligraphy, printmaking, writing, painting and drawing and more at The Art Shop.

Great gift ideas for all ages… for the difficult ones and the ones who are a pleasure to buy for.

Hope to see you…

Alongside our specialist artists’ materials we have writing paper, fountain pen and calligraphy sets, books for everyone, collections of papers (handmade Indian and Japanese for example), wrapping papers, cards, calendars and lots more.

Tuesday 5th January 2016

We would like to wish all our customers a Joyful Christmas and a peaceful New Year. Thank you for all your support over the last year at The Art Shop and the Chapel.

When we return we will be preparing for an exhibition upstairs at the Chapel from the children’s performance ‘A Winter Wildness’ that took place on 22nd December – life sized trees, leaves, costumes, design worksheets and a video …and amongst these trees will be our next musical event – Bragod – ‘In Praise of Mid-Winter’, on Friday 22nd January ‘with bold, ritual songs, ballads and medieval poetry and a magical Arthurian episode celebrating the holly and the ivy.’ 

So much to look forward to, we will keep you in touch

Artist, Sarah Rhys, gave a short talk about this ancient Celtic custom, and showed a small selection of drawings and prints, alongside paintings by the inimitable William Brown. Traditional Welsh songs were sung and the procession made its way into town and through the Market Hall.
