WELCOME TO SABLE STUDIO GALLERY

Creating from Nature

I set up Sable Studio Gallery 20 years ago but have had my gallery space at Moira Furnace Museum for around 15 years. Such a beautiful location by the canal my unit is located in the courtyard with several other businesses including a café. There is free parking on site, wheelchair access, toilets, woodland walks, boat rides, ice creams, picnic areas and so much more locally to see and do. In my studio space I run regular classes and workshops as well as sell paintings, cards, prints, jewellery and giftware

 

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Jo Allsopp

I am a fully qualified art tutor and began working in Adult Education over 20 years ago for Leicestershire County Council. When a unit became available to rent by the canal, I decided this was just too much of a great opportunity to miss and so began running my own classes from my gallery space. The business has gone from strength to strength and I have lots of regular students who attend my weekly classes as well as attendees to the weekend workshops which I offer, usually twice a month. 
In 2019 I was chosen to appear on BBC One on the new art TV series 'Home is where the art is' with presenter Nick Knowles which was a fabulous experience. This then led to me pushing my art further afield and striking up a working relationship with the SAA.  Loving art of a different kind, I am a black belt and currently a world champion in Tae Kwon-Do at hand power - have been British Champion breaking boards and held many more titles from this martial art and Judo
