December 2022 Exhibitions and Events at Colonnade House

This month at Colonnade House, you will find lots of festive inspiration and community spirit. After her appearance on ‘Kirstie’s Handmade Christmas’, local textile designer Lucy Rowan is holding craft workshops,  joined by Ellie Bond, to get you in the Christmas spirit.

There’s lots to look forward to at our annual Pop Up Shop! This year, we’re bringing creative charities & local makers to our gallery, with plenty of gifts made & designed by our studio members. Fancy making your own gifts ? Personalise & craft your own festive gifts at our Space to Make Festive Tech Workshop sessions. Finally, we bring 2022 to an end with Walter Wall and his latest collection of work ‘Fragments 2’.

Find all of this and more at Colonnade House, Worthing’s creative hub.
