Fowlers Yard Creative
Workspaces have enabled local artists to be visible to local, national and
international visitors. Meeting the artists and watching them at work
provides an opportunity to learn more about their individual art forms. All
of the artists welcome commissions and have work on sale.
Fowlers Yard forms part of the growing cultural quarter within Durham City. Transformed from its original purpose as stables the buildings have been developed into workspaces that bear the individuality of each tenant. For more about the history of fowlers yard visit our history page.
