The Ropewalk Museum

Welcome to the Ropewalk Website.

The Ropewalk is a regionally acclaimed centre for the arts housing four gallery spaces, a sculpture garden, coffee shop and facilities for room hire, printmaking and picture framing.

Ropery Hall is small scale venue for film, theatre, comedy and music.

The centre is situated slightly to the east of the Humber Bridge, on the southern bank of the River Humber. Stretching out towards the bank, at almost a quarter of a mile long, The Ropewalk was initially part of a rope making factory; opening in 1767, the factory eventually closed in 1989.

We welcome a new jeweller to The Ropewalk Craft Gallery, Amanda Priest.  Living and working in Lincolnshire, Amanda recently applied to trial her work in the Craft Gallery after completing her contemporary jewellery degree.  Her inspiration is taken from personal memories, experiences, travel and conversations.  Working with non-precious and semi -precious materials such as steel, silver and gold, her quest is to explore the relationship between the materials.

Waste Not Want Not

Studio artist Michael Scrimshaw has worked his magic on the used key kegs from the Ropery Hall bar and upcycled them into cloches for your garden.  Easy to use, light weight, these cloches are sure to protect your plants from pesky insects and slugs!  These cloches are available to purchase from the Craft Gallery for just £5 each!  Money from the purchases will be donated to the Ropery Hall Development Fund.

Printmaking Exhibition

The Ropewalk Printmakers will be exhibiting their work at The Wrawby Moor Gallery, Elsham Hall from July 16 to August 15.
