Forge Artspace

In the heart of picturesque Shere, The Forge Artspace is a beautiful Lutyens designed building which until recently was a fully functioning forge. It has been sympathetically renovated to create a bright, airy space which lends itself to being an art gallery. We are a group of local artists who work with a variety of media – acrylics, oils, pastels, printmaking, ceramics and silver. During Open Studios the Forge will be filled with landscapes, seascapes, abstracts, still lifes, prints, ceramics, silver jewellery and much more. One of our artists will be demonstrating her painting techniques. You will have the opportunity to meet the artists and chat about their work which will be available to purchase, including cards and prints.


Work for sale
There will be an opportunity to buy work from each of the makers. Prices range from £2.50 to £500. Cash and credit cards accepted.

Visiting information
We are in the main village street and signposted free parking is located about 100m away on the recreation ground. The Forge is wheelchair friendly. Well behaved children and dogs are welcome.

Place to eat
You will not go hungry in Shere!! Hilly’s for cream teas and the Dabbling Duck are both within a stone’s throw, delicious ice creams will be available from Shere Delights across the road and the William Bray and the White Horse will serve excellent pub food.

Transport Details
A bus service (numbers 22, 25 and 32) from Guildford or Dorking runs through the village with a stop round the corner opposite the Village Hall. Please check bus time tables! It’s a two minute walk from the bus stop and there is a railway station at Gomshall, a mere 20 minute walk away.
