AN artist is set to open a studio and gallery space on the site of the old job centre in Beaumaris.

Sally Fairclough, who hails from Burnley, Lancashire, will be opening Stiwdio Biwmares on the site that was once home to Beau Annie’s charity shop and the job centre on Margaret Street.

The studio will cater to artists and craftspeople in the area, with Sally having her own workspace, as well as a workshop room that will be hired out for a program of short courses and activities.

Sally’s workshop was previously based at the town’s The Exchange, and the move will give Sally and other artists greater creative space.

“It’s been a great couple of years in The Exchange but it’s now time to expand,” said Ms Fairclough.

“We have substantially renovated the interior of the property and given it a facelift with a new paint job to the exterior walls and windows.

“I will have a large selection of art supplies for sale with many being available to ‘try before you buy’ giving artists/ makers to opportunity to get hands on with the products.

“I’m a stockist for Annie Sloan chalk paint and will be running workshops in using chalk paint to revamp/upcycle furniture as well as being available for commissions.”

Stiwdio Biwmares is scheduled to open on Saturday, 25 March with Mayor of Beaumaris Neil Gough set to open the space.
