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.


Happy New Year

We have brand new programmes of workshops, exhibitions and events at Ropery Hall for 2015. Have a look at the new magazine for further details.

Jeweller of the month

Gosia Niedzwiedzka

Gosia N

January’s Featured Jeweller Gosia Niedzwiedzka has always been creative and passionate about the crafts, art and tradition.

Her favourite material to work with is silver wire as she loves the elegance, style and beauty of the metal and how it can be transformed with different techniques.

Gosia strives to make jewellery for those who appreciate the elegance of previous metal, the quirkiness of more unusual materials and the individuality of quality hand-made jewellery.
