Shieldfield Home pt. 2

Part 2: 28 January - 25 February 12pm - 5pm NewBridge Gallery

Shieldfield Home is an exhibition of art, craft and design made by people who live and work in Shieldfield! Part 2 of the show celebrates our home in The Shieldfield Centre and the work that is made our neighbours and members.

The NewBridge Project invites you to their winter exhibition in two parts: Shieldfield Home.

Part 2: Saturday 28 January – Saturday 25 February, Opening Party: Friday 27 January 6pm – 9pm.

The NewBridge Project Gallery space

Part 2 of Shieldfield Home is a celebration of art made in Shieldfield by local artists, makers and NewBridge‘s own artist community! All kinds of art, craft and creativity will be exhibited – from drawings and paintings to photography, films and books to craft, design & digital art, floral, textiles, fashion, music & sound. Artworks will be displayed in their custom-designed showroom in our gallery. Some of the art will be for sale and there will be full programme of events for anyone to get involved in.

We made Shieldfield our home back in October 2021 and we have been warmly welcomed to the area and look forward to meeting more of Shieldfield’s makers and artists.

Shieldfield Home starts off The NewBridge Project’s theme ‘The Home’. They will be producing a long term programme of exhibitions, events, talks and workshops which explore ‘The Home’, what it means in their community and space in Shieldfield.

Making Sessions

For Shieldfield Home pt. 2, NewBridge artists are hosting two free making sessions – one for adults and one for youths! In these sessions, you are invited to make work to put into the exhibition! You might think that you don’t have a creative bone in your body, but we are sure you do!
