Our usual hours are as follows. Please also check the "SPECIAL CLOSURES/HOURS" section below.

Mon/Tue/Wed: Closed. We will open by prior appointment only. Please contact us via the form on the CONTACT US page to request an appointment. For urgent queries please TEXT 07957997420. Please text rather than calling as we are often at exhibition set ups, delivering work, sourcing stock or meeting artists on these days. We do open on some bank holiday Mondays - see below.

Thursday/Friday: 11am - 4pm (appointment only visits available outside of these hours)

Saturday: 10am - 5pm (sometimes shut 1-2pm as I have to get the dog home)

Sunday: 11am - 4pm

Easter Sunday/Christmas period/Boxing Day/Bank holidays: CHECK BELOW

In the event we need to close on one of our usual open days (due to an exhibition etc) we will gve as much prior notice as possible on this site, in our windows, on twitter, facebook and instagram.



Please note, the physical shop in Folkestone has to be closed on Thur 1 Nov due to having an urgent order to sort out in London (which would have been done today but delivery issues...you know how it happens with the urgent stuff!). Apologies. Back on Fri at 11am as usual.


Might be worth me pointing out now that due to some exhibitions I am in that are coming up in Nov, I am going to have to close on a couple of my usual open days later this month (TBD, but expect at least one thurs and one fri to be closed, almost certainly one or both of November 15 and 16) due to having to be up setting up/taking down/moving around and doing work/ going to the launches etc. Apologies in advance, I sadly can't do the shop and these things at the same time, but Thursdays and Fridays are generally quieter anyway so hopefully this doesn't cause problems.

The shop is also unlikely to be open the night of the Christmas light switch on (Fri 16th Nov) as I have prior commitments with work in two exhibitions launching that night so need to be at both of those shows in London too. Due to the fragile nature of the contents of the shop and how busy the street gets that night, I am not comfortable having someone else cover the shop.
