About Us


Allendale Creative Artists began as a co-operative of professional artists and small businesses, which then quickly grew into an award-winning social enterprise and community interest company at The Allendale Forge Studios.

Now, the Forge is a hub for artists, the local community and visitors to enjoy.


Our facilities include:

  • Professional working studios

  • Office space

  • Gallery

  • Gift shop

  • Workshops

  • Conferencing facilities

  • Volunteering opportunities


A not-for-profit organiszation, we continue to work with volunteers, maintaining a valuable resource and community hub, unique within the beautiful setting of the North Pennines.
