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.

Something for everyone in the Craft Gallery

Jon-H   Jane-Withers

Whether you’re an early bird and have already made a start on your Christmas shopping list or you have a special gift to buy, the Craft Gallery has a selection of items perfect for that special someone.

‘For him’ we have a wonderful range of leather work by Jon Homer and taking pride of place in the display is a stunning briefcase.  Jon’s range also includes book covers, tweed bags, belts and candle covers – all in a wonderful assortment of coloured leather, handcrafted in his Lincolnshire workshop.

‘For her’ we have a selection of machine knitted textiles by Jane Withers, of Janie Knitted Textiles, in Welbeck, Nottinghamshire.  Jane has recently started making cushions and interior pieces.  We have two of her designs, the ‘honeycomb’ and ‘sprig tree’.
