The Silk Shed

Welcome to The Silk Shed – the studio of Portishead Artist Stephanie Gay ! Sadly I had to leave my lovely studio and gallery at Somerset Flower Farm in Wrington in North Somerset but now I have a brilliant new purpose built artist studio in the garden at my home in Portishead. The studio has wonderful views across the Severn Estuary to Wales.

I’m delighted that following the relaxation of Covid 19 restrictions I can now open again by appointment. Face masks must be worn for the duration of your visit.

Portishead is a coastal town on the Severn Estuary close to Bristol and it offers many attractions. The redeveloped marina was modelled on the Cornish seaside town of Polperro and is a lovely place to stroll and enjoy the many cafes and restaurants. Visit the seafront esplanade and lake grounds with its boating lake, play parks, cafes and the fantastic Portishead Open Air Lido. The Victorian High Street offers a great range of independent shops and some big name stores. There’s plenty for a lovely day out.
