Art & Crafts

Ilfracombe is fast gaining a reputation as a centre for arts and crafts, not just in North Devon but in the wider region as well.

Damien Hirst’s Verity on the harbour is a stunning piece of public art and is joined by permanent art which was created from the Ilfra Expo event in 2013. Among these are illustrated panels on the museum created by Hannah Davies & in Broad Street you will find panels created by Gethin Wyn Jones

There are several galleries from the Harbour to the High Street selling arts and crafts from artists both local and with national acclaim and there is something to suit all tastes and pockets. Many of the galleries host exhibitions and ‘meet the artist’ events throughout the year. Some of the artists have their own sales space and can be seen working at their craft. Fine art, portrait painting, landscape, sculpture, glass working, felt and cloth working and many other media.
