Popular poet Ian McMillan will cut the official opening ribbon of a new Sheffield gallery later this month.
All Good Stuff, which is located in Butcher Works on Arundel Street, is the first retail outlet to be opened by a new artist-led collaborative enterprise which aims to promote and sell the work of Sheffield artists, makers and designers.
The gallery exhibits a hand-crafted goods made by more than 40 artists and artisans working in the city and surrounding area.
All Good Stuff’s shop opened for business a few weeks ago and has already attracted plenty of sales.
Anne Phipps, All Good Stuff director, said: “There are so many talented local artists and artisans who produce high quality, beautiful things and we know many people love to support local businesses and buy locally hand-made and original work. Providing a city centre gallery-shop run on a co-operative basis is a way of bringing everything together.”
Acclaimed poet, performer and broadcaster Ian McMillan –nicknamed the Bard of Barnsley – will cut the ribbon at a celebration to mark the opening of All Good Stuff on Thursday, July 17, between 6pm and 8.30pm.
