In 2015, local artist Pauline Le Britton was looking for a town centre workspace. Good relationships had already been made with the Riverside Shopping Centre during the popupwest project in 2012 and the door was open to using a meanwhile lease on an empty unit to set up artist studios
The initial group of 6 artists were: Pauline Le Britton, Heidi Baker, Sharron Harris, penny d jones, Ruth Sargeant and Louise Bird.
As part of our work with Confluence, studio artists were invited to submit ideas for Artsheds a family friendly participatory art project designed in partnership with Haverfordwest Town Council, for Haverfordwest festival week in 2016.
Heidi Baker and Sharron Harris each developed and delivered an arts and regeneration project as part of the Ideas Lab programme and Ruth Sargeant and penny d jones (as part of the Rhod collective) were selected for PLATFORM – 3 days of contemporary art in Haverfordwest.
For Haverfordwest festival week in July 2017, artists occupying the studios, co-curated Cabinets of Curiosities a show of new and recent work.
Since January 2018, the main shop floor is providing a base for spacetocreate who will be working with the current studio artists: Sharron Harris, Heidi Baker, Ruth Sargeant, Lizzie Waterhouse, Emma Gooding and Karen Golding, on the development of an annual programme of window displays, exhibitions, workshops and events.
