ILKLEY ARTS

Ilkley Arts is a small registered charity based in Ilkley run by volunteers. Its mission is to promote and celebrate the arts in Ilkley and surrounding areas to enrich the lives of residents and visitors.


 

Ilkley Arts operates from the Ilkley Arts studio in Castle Yard next door to the Manor House that is a venue for exhibitions, workshops and is also home to the Ilkley Art School. There is also a thriving members hub where artists and creatives can come together to share ideas and thoughts about their and other artists’ work.  Ilkley Arts also hosts an artist attic studio in an adjoining cottage that has been used to support artists developing their practice.

SUPPORTING LOCAL ARTISTS

Ilkley Arts support a wide range of local artists throughout Ilkley and across Yorkshire. To support and help the development of these artists, Ilkley Arts has facilitated this online shop to showcase the amazing work these  artists’ create.
