Room 212 is a shop and gallery selling Bristol art & craft by local artists including the owner, Sarah Thorp. Based on the popular Gloucester Road, Bristol.
Room 212 is an Aladdin’s Cave of Bristol art and creativity and has gained a reputation as the go-to place for original, interesting gifts and artwork. Based on the central part of Gloucester Road, Bristol known locally as Glos Rd Central http://glosrdcentral.co.uk, Room 212 is at the heart of a group of independently owned local shops and galleries. Regular themes tie in with the seasons or Bristol events inspiring artists to produce new and different work. A highlight is the North Bristol Art Trail at the end of November http://www.northbristolartists.org.uk and Room 212 acts as a permanent home for many artists appearing on this long established art trail.
We also curate exhibitions and hold events at new cafe bar Alchemy 198 If you would like to run a workshop, art class or other event at Alchemy then do get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org. We plan to run casual creative meet ups too. Feel free to bring your artistic projects to work on in this relaxed, artistic bar.
