Parndon Mill is a unique studio hub which reaches beyond fine art and craft to encompass many more creative disciplines. Artists using traditional media work alongside craftsmen in glass, ceramics, metal, photography and textiles and a guitar maker. They are intermixed with graphic and product designers, architects, and an engineering designer who has frequently furthered their creative projects. The Gallery presents exhibitions of the variety of work made at Parndon Mill and beyond. The Project Space accommodates classes and events.
