Atelier Beside the Sea was established in the summer of 2021 by Jon Tutton and Sarah Young. It is an arts venue occupying three of the iconic King’s Road Arches on Brighton Seafront, right between the Palace and West Piers. We offer a wide range of creative activities and the best in art and craft to inspire and surprise our local community as well as visitors to our city.
The gallery operates a national and international programme of exhibitions, drawing from the abundantly creative local area, as well as showcasing fresh and original contemporary art, craft and design from across the globe.
Our shop specialises in beautiful and practical handmade work and highlights the individual makers and their processes. We offer a carefully curated selection of ceramics, textiles, jewellery, print, painting and sculpture from outstanding artists, craftspeople and designers from Sussex and further afield.
MAKE is our teaching and community programme, offering a wide variety of classes and workshops for all levels. From porcelain paperclay, wood carving and jewellery making, to sustainable fashion design, cuttlefish casting and drawing on the beach, there is something to inspire all ages and interests.
