The UK has a wealth of talented artists and makers, and Alcove Art celebrates this by supporting local makers as much as possible in these difficult times. Every item we stock has been designed in the UK by British-based artists and designers. Some pieces are made abroad, others are entirely handmade in the UK - we'll let you know about that on our product pages. We source small to medium-sized pieces that are perfect for posting so that we can deliver to you easily, and in a timely manner. You can be confident they'll arrive just when you need them.
During these difficult times, relationships and home have become more important than ever. We're showing friends and family that we care by sending gifts, using the internet to remember birthdays, anniversaries, to commiserate, and simply to say “Hello, we miss you!” We're creating a comfortable environment and space to relax in at home, and to ease our minds from the everyday worries that we all share. Art plays a vital part in this process – both creating it, and appreciating it. It can soothe us, remind us of happier times and places, and improve our environment in ways that nothing else can. Alcove Art aims to help you do this from the comfort and safety of your home.
Although our high streets are slowly coming back to life, these last few months have demonstrated just how essential online shopping has become. We hope you find our website to be an easy browsing and shopping experience, and that you'll visit us often, as we're adding new art, craft and gifts all the time.
