About Us
Crafts

The Arts Centre is a shop window for a huge variety of local artisans. Each has a wealth of artistic expression inspired by the beautiful local landscape and their talents and ideas are portrayed in their work.

Craft people are in residence every day in the summer season and their work varies from large or expensive to small or a few pennies; practical or useful, treats and mementos. Wood-turners, candles, knitting, embroidery, toys, painted china, stones and metalwork, soaps, clothes, stationary and a huge range of hand-made or painted cards.


Crafts at the Arts Center

This is an Aladdin's cave in a beautiful Georgian building and an historic Aberdeenshire village. There is truly something for everyone to enjoy at Monymusk.


Events

Coming craft events from the Arts Trust.

Event Name: the future of the Monymusk Arts Trust
18:21, 3 November, 2018
The 30 year Lease between Monymusk Estate and the Monymusk Arts Centre expires in April 2019, so there will be no more art exhibitions or crafts for sale in the Centre next summer. The Trust as it has been known for the last 30 years will be reconstituted and, after April 2019, information will be available about what form support for the arts at Monymusk will take. The Trust's Committee would like to thank all the crafters, artists and musicians who have supported us over the years. It has been a wonderful experience, we have met so many interesting people and we very much appreciate all the goodwill which has so often been offered. Our thanks also go to the myriad of visitors who have crossed our portal; of all ages, from all walks of life and from all over the world. A generation of children have grown up at Monymusk with all the fun and benefits of the Centre, it is a small village but has always seemed to be a microcosm of the rest of the world. Please watch this space :)
