Model House Craft and Design Centre's Victorian exterior belies the wealth of beautiful objects you will find inside. The Crafts Council listed gallery on the ground floor is full of selected ceramics, elegant glass and a large collection of designer jewellery. There is also a wide range of imaginative gifts and cards. The inspiration continues on the upper floors where resident craftworkers create and sell from their studios.
Model House also runs a busy events programme to encourage creativity amongst its visitors. Events range from children's activities to more specialised workshops for craft and design enthusiasts. Many of the workshops are run by our own resident craftspeople and designers. Other events, including outreach projects and educational activities, are co-ordinated by Model House.
Model House also manages display cases in Newport Museum & Art Gallery running a programme of artists profiles that change every 6 weeks.
