Verity Pulford + Pratibha Mistry

From Friday 19 November
The Biscuit Factory
Free admission
Glass artists Verity Pulford and Pratibha Mistry showcase newly developed work inspired by micro and macro worlds. Their inspirations have allowed fascinating and thought provoking work to be produced, pushing at the boundaries of what is possible with the material.

Verity’s work is inspired by organic structures- in particular the small details- the shapes and textures of algae, fungi, lichen, moss and ferns while Pratibha is an artist fascinated by the contours of human organs and the intricate cellular structures and their workings.


Winter Opening Event

Friday 19 November
Due to popular demand we are holding a small celebration of the new Winter season on Friday 19 November.

Places are extremely limited, and only available by RSVP to art@thebiscuitfactory.com by Monday 15 November.

We'll be celebrating the new collection by Anthony Marshall, enjoying seasonal refreshments and indulging in some Christmas shopping. If you'd like to attend please email art@thebiscuitfactory.com 


Janine Burrows
'A Sense of Place'

From Friday 3 September
The Biscuit Factory
Free admission
Join us this Autumn as we welcome Janine Burrows to The Biscuit Factory with her largest solo exhibition to date.
This body of work is inspired by Janine's North East heritage and explores how place and fragments of remembered moments, allow us to maintain connections to our past, to the ones we love and even to ourselves. The result is a deeply personal, beautiful and exciting collection of paintings, drawings, painted ceramics and handcrafted wooden 'huizen' structures.

Contemporary Glass Society

The Biscuit Factory
Wed - Sun 10 - 5
Free admission
Throughout the year we'll be hosting a seasonal rotation of contemporary glass artists in partnership with the esteemed Contemporary Glass Society.
Featured artists will be welcomed each season as we showcase a breadth of work that demonstrates the talent, artistry and skill in all aspects of contemporary glass art.

Juliet E P Gibbs

From 25 September
The Biscuit Factory
Free admission
Winner of the 2019 Open Contemporary Young Artist Award, we finally welcome Juliet E P Gibbs to The Biscuit Factory for her solo exhibition from 25 September.

Gibbs' work focusses mainly on the contrast between the organic and the man-made. The work seeks to look at the direct impact humanity poses in relation to the world we live in, and how nature inevitably fights back. This age-old conflict creates an interesting 'push-and-pull' that we can all observe in the places we live, work and visit.
