For the past 38 years we have been championing contemporary craft in the vibrant city of Leeds to shine a spotlight on independent makers and their small businesses from across Yorkshire and the rest of the UK. Through an exciting seasonal exhibition programme we highlight the skills behind handmade and share their inspiring stories. Bringing these amazing collections of contemporary craft together under one roof has created a haven for many visitors to escape the stresses of daily life & create mindful experiences. Please help us keep the gallery and the hundreds of small businesses we support alive by donating what you can so we can continue to keep bringing the very best of contemporary craft to you and help us and these creative industries thrive.

As Leeds City Art Gallery undergoes some well needed TLC remaining closed until the Autumn of 2017 it's really important for you to remember that we're still very much OPEN! Especially as we approach the festive season. So if you're on the lookout for an inspired gift for a loved one to leave under the Christmas Tree this year we'll be open Tue - Sat 10am - 5pm throughout November and in December we'll be open every day up to Christmas Eve (Mon - Sat 10am - 5pm, Sunday 11am - 4pm and Christmas Eve 10am - 1pm). We'll then be re-opening on Tue 3rd January as we embark on celebrating our 35 year anniversary. As we work behind the scenes planning some serious celebrations to mark this milestone you can catch all the latest news by following us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Vimeo.
Our current exhibitions include work from the very best of British contemporary jewellery, ceramics, glass, wood, textiles and works in mixed media not to mention stocking fillers, Christmas decorations and Christmas cards.
