This is the web site for Two Doors Studio in Alsager. The shop is run by Lorna and Ruthie. We are at 100 Crewe Road, Alsager and are open Tues-Sat 9:30-5pm. The shop is full of wonderful gifts, cards and artwork, from very talented local artists. All items in the shop are handcrafted. We now have over 60 artists displaying their products (most of them local) and we know each one personally ! We have three rooms displaying artist's work, and an upstairs studio with artwork on the walls.

❤️ Events & Workshops also cancelled
Due to the Corona Virus, on the 14th March we took the decision to cancel or postpone all our Events & Workshops.
Everyone who has already booked on one of our Workshops has been contacted and given the option to have a refund now or to hold their booking for a future date when we are able to rerun our workshops.
Come and browse, you will be surprised at what we have to offer. Special and unique gifts for your family, friends - or even yourself!
In the shop we stock high quality locally made jewellery, glass, ceramics, paintings, prints, textiles, homewares, cards and gifts. We display the work of over 60 artists. Twenty five of these are from Alsager itself, with a further twenty two from within 15 miles of the shop. So most of our artists are truly local.
Throughout the year, we run a number of exhibitions in the upstairs Studio. We had our second Ceramic Festival last September, and our first Textile Exhibition in May. We have also recently presented a series of exhibitions of local solo artists - Frederick Philips, John Broadhurst, Matt Buckingham and Graham Lee. We have also had several live Music events.

We are passionate about promoting handcrafting and so have a range of workshops from expert tutors to encourage you to have a go yourselves.
The Front Room
Come and enjoy a self service coffee or tea and a snack in our ‘Front Room’, surrounded by local and hand-crafted artwork. Sit and relax and chat with your friends, or whoever happens to be in. We always have lots of our artists popping in to bring in new work, or simply to enjoy the atmosphere of the shop.
In addition to providing a social space, the Front Room allows us to host extended exhibitions, meet-the-artist events, community group meetings, craft cafes and more.
Two Doors Studio is now closed
(until further notice).
On Sunday we decided that because of the Corona Virus we would have to close the shop. Then on Monday the government told us we had to anyway !
As well as the shop closure, all our Workshops & Event dates are also cancelled. These were the first things to be cancelled by us two weeks ago! The workshops are in fact just postponed and we intend to rerun them all at a later date. Everyone who has booked on one of our workshops has already been contacted. If you were interested in one of the workshops, but hadn’t booked, keep an eye on our Newsletter, Web site, or Facebook and we will announce the new dates when we can.
We fully intend to reopen when normality resumes. We have pressed the pause button and are waiting to press the play button to resume where we left off. On a positive note, sales recently have been good, and we intend to resume normal activities as soon as we are able. So thank you all for your support and your custom, which makes Two Doors as much a community as a shop. We really do appreciate it and it is what will get us through the next few months. We will look forward to seeing you all again, when we resume trading.
We will be monitoring the shop's email so please feel free to get in touch.
Many thanks from Ruthie & Lorna
