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.
This month we introduce a new printmaker to The Ropewalk, Robert Greenhalf from Rye, East Sussex., one of the country’s leading wildlife artists.
Robert works mainly in watercolour, oils, woodcut and drypoint. His drypoint prints and some of his woodcuts are printed in black and hand-coloured with watercolour, whilst others involve the cutting and printing of a separate block for each colour.

New Room For Hire
We have a new workshop room available to hire in Fathom Works. The 200sq ft unit is already in use by our regular patchwork class on a Tuesday afternoon. To see our programme of daily workshops please click here.
We are looking for someone who enjoys working with young people to help with our Wednesday night art club.
Wednesday night art club is a lively club for 12 – 19 year olds running from 6:30 – 8:30pm during term time only.
The session is led by a professional artist offering various creative activities. Volunteers are required to supervise the young people, assist them with the activity where necessary and help with clearing up after the session. Some creativity is preferable and the ability to interact with young people.
The Ropewalk is looking to recruit a bank of volunteers to help with a variety of tasks throughout the centre. If you are interested in volunteering with us please click here for further details.
