The Gallery at the Wharf is located in an award winning regenerated canal side group of buildings by the Leeds and Liverpool Canal in Burscough. The wharf houses an eclectic mix of boutique shops, restaurant, tapas bar and tea room with regular events throughout the year.
The gallery is a permanent home of the Art and Craft Guild of Lancashire, which is a co operative founded 26 years ago to promote and sell high quality art and crafts made in Lancashire. The light and airy gallery features art, photography, glass, ceramics, textiles, jewellery, furniture and turned and carved wood.
Several times a year guest artists are invited to show and the Guild runs an active scheme to promote emerging artists by giving them exhibition space. The members mount three exhibitions within the gallery each year and of course fill it with beautiful gifts for Christmas giving. Many of our members mount a series of workshops covering textiles, painting, ceramics, jewellery making upstairs in the Arts Centre overlooking the canal.
