WELCOME TO EAST GATE GALLERY

Tucked away at the east end of Pembroke High Street at the location of the historic East Gate of the old town wall, you’ll find East Gate Gallery and our Pottery Classes!

A brilliant (if we do say so ourselves!) little gallery and gift shop in Pembroke showcasing exquisite pottery by Mena Ceramics and a range of stunning works by local Pembrokeshire artists, crafters, and designers.

We run pottery classes and workshops in the ‘Pottering Shed’ at the gallery, a repurposed old tailor’s workspace, transformed into treasure trove of ceramic and artistic materials! It’s a wonderful peaceful space to come and relax and immerse yourself in one of our pottery classes or other craft workshops.

“I’m inspired by the beauty of the coastal landscape here in Pembrokeshire, but I’m equally inspired by the country lanes. I’m constantly finding little bits on the beach or in the hedgerows, and I’m just as interested in the weeds...the forget-me-knots growing in the nooks and crannies and the brilliant yellow un-loved dandelions.”

Mena Williams

As the founder and owner of East Gate Gallery, Mena is helping to expand the growing artistic community in Pembroke. The gallery hosts a variety of creative classes run by local Pembrokeshire artists, including Mena’s own pottery classes.

For her own ceramic work, Mena often uses beach-combed objects and natural materials to press into the clay. Every piece is a hand-crafted one-off.

The pieces Mena sells in the East Gate Gallery range from delicate tea lights to large table lamps, with everything in between from simple tea cups to intricate jewellery.
