Welcome to Guggleton Farm Arts, a unique creative space located in the beautiful small town of Stalbridge, Dorset, situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Our project has been thriving for over 25 years and was created by our founder and owner, Isabel de Pelet, who remains heavily involved today.
We became a CIC (Community Interest Company) in January 2020 and a certified member of Social Enterprise UK in January 2021. Our team includes 7 local directors and a 14 strong Creative Committee of artists, craftworkers, and members of the local community.
Our goal is to provide opportunities for everyone, from residents to visitors, to explore creativity at all levels. We believe that creativity is key to personal development and well-being, which is why we offer a welcoming environment for all ages and experience levels to get involved in a range of artistic disciplines such as painting, sculpture, stone carving, textile design, printmaking, music and performance, ceramics, and associated crafts.
We support established artists by providing them with a space to experiment, new artists with the network, structure, and exposure to develop, and raw artists with the opportunity to grow. Our non-outcome based approach promotes a refreshing counterpoint to everyday life, and we believe that the process and journey of creating is just as important as the final outcome.
We invite you to become a part of our creative community by visiting our Get Involved area to learn more. Whether you're an artist, crafter, or simply someone who loves to explore creativity, we have something for everyone.
