We have made a series of gentle additions to offer greatly improved support services for visitors to the much-loved Kettle’s Yard House and Gallery. A new entrance and spacious welcome area give clear access to all the different elements of Kettle’s Yard – the original House, the old and new galleries, the new education spaces, archive and project space, a new shop and a new café.
Two spacious new gallery spaces have been built, suitable for larger works than it was previously possible to exhibit. There is also a very small display space allowing art to be viewed from the street.
The new, fully accessible education wing expands education space at Kettle’s Yard by almost 200 per cent. It incorporates a double-height Clore Learning Studio, with generous spaces, at basement level. On the upper floors, open to everyone, are a new archive, with archival exhibition space and research space, plus a project and learning space.
The education wing looks directly onto the frontage on Castle Street, making visible this important aspect of Kettle’s Yard’s work.
