Artworks is housed in an old mill and the resident artists cover all forms of art. We were impressed by the paintings, drawings and sculpture that was displayed. There is an immense amount of talent based in this lovely old building. Well worth a visit.

I've been visiting The Artworks since 2011. With amazing tuition I've felt a calm and pride that nothing else can make me feel. I've also been privileged to attend several exhibitions which are always mind bending, thought provoking and carefully put together. Just simply perfecto.

Well worth a visit to see examples of Quentin`s work. My children where brought up reading Roald Dahl books with the fantastic imaginative drawings of Quentin Blake. Well done for bringing it to Halifax, Friendly welcoming staff added to the enjoyment.

I have seen all sorts here: nationally acclaimed cartoonists, photography from polar explorations and local art school end of term shows. It is free to attend, the staff are friendly and the loos are clean. Tucked away behind Shaw Mill it's worth looking for.

I love this place. It's about an hours journey from where I live but providing you plan ahead, (unlike the one negative viewer appeared to do) you can see some great art exhibitions. Earlier this year I was privileged to meet the artist Russell Mills...More
