Our Shop

A carefully curated selection of gifts, prints, and greetings cards.

Our shop reflects the collection and themes of the museum and the surrounding locality. Enjoy nature-inspired prints and products, items for the garden, and outdoor activities to enjoy in the park.

Locally Made.

Discover locally-made ceramics, design-led homeware; find the perfect present, and treat yourself to handmade jewellery and accessories.

If you are feeling inspired from your visit to the gallery, we offer a selection of artists materials, sketchbooks and stationery, along with textile craft kits to get creative at home.

Choose from our fantastic collection of picture books, pocket-money toys and creative activity packs for children.

Unique souvenirs include artist-designed items commissioned by The Whitaker, supporting local designers and makers.
