As we are unable to hold the PAW Festival this year, we would love it if you had a good look at what would have been a great exhibition:
Rollington Barn hosts PAW’s collective exhibition showcasing the fantastic range of creative talent on show across Purbeck; sculpture, paintings and jewellery rub shoulders with ceramics, prints, photography and greetings cards. Artwork can be purchased and taken away on the day. We accept cash, cheques and most credit and debit cards.
As a hub for the PAW festival, Rollington Barn provides a taste of what can be discovered by visiting our Open Studios, many of which provide a unique opportunity to meet our artists. You will find a warm welcome in those often less known and hidden corners of Purbeck.
Rollington Barn is an excellent place to start planning your art trail. On the barn door a large PAW map will help you find your way around the Open Studios and events, with information on the full Programmes (£2) and purchase your raffle tickets and PAW sketchbook here. Keep a look out on the barn noticeboard and on PAW social media for information on informal lunchtime concerts featuring local musicians, and artists’ talks and displays taking place at Rollington.
Love Cake’s pop up courtyard café offers a selection of delicious homemade cakes, light lunches and hot and cold drinks. Opening hours are 10.00am – 5.00pm.
In the PYA (Purbeck Young Artists) barn, across the courtyard from the main barn, is one of Rollington’s highlights; an eclectic display of artistic creativity and imagination by students from local schools that will provide inspiration to all.
Keep your Brochure as a valuable contact point for artists all year round so next time you need a unique present or special gift, you know whom to call.
