Winter at The Tetley

Journal 29 Nov 2021

Temperatures have definitely dropped and the nights are drawing in – but we’ve got lots to keep you busy and inspired at The Tetley this winter, both in person and online.

We’re also extremely excited to reveal here our brand new website – with features to make it easier to find out what’s on, and a new Journal section, with space for news, behind the scenes insights and reflection.

Discover our highlights for the next few months below, or visit our What’s On page to get booking.

Online, as well as our new website, we’re delighted to launch the artwork of our round two PANIC! Bursary artists – discover their incredible bursary projects here.

On our Journal, we’ve also just announced artist Stephanie Jefferies’ Tiny Tetley Studio Commission, opening in February 2022. This new space, opening on The Tetley’s second floor, will be free and open five days a week, for young children to explore, play and make art with their parents and carers.
