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 printmaking and room hire.

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.

The Craft Gallery

New to the Craft Gallery this week are Christine Cummings ceramic pigs. Capturing their character and beauty, Christine draws inspiration from the memories of painting her pet pig Jezabelle as a child. Her unique style, and love for the natural world is captured by her beautifully hand crafted pieces using a mixture of crank bodied and stoneware clays which are then raku and stone fired.
