Let us explain... A group of artists have come together, led by Nick Shipton co-founder of the Brothership studio. The Brothership opened in May 2019 in Bull Plain, Hertford, Hertfordshire.
Our artists work from individual studios and sell their art direct to customers and display works in the shop front. The Brothership's philosophy is about 'Tribe' - artists working together, sharing their knowledge, collaborating and being inspired in a chilled and friendly environment.
Our mission is #ArtOnWalls and to make art accessible to all. Nick says "Brothership is about creating art, selling art and the interaction you have with our artists in residence working in their spaces".
During lockdown the Brothership has been working to brighten people’s walls and bring hope. Paul Crowley’s Rainbow prints and Ceri Shipton’s NHS Heroes prints plus some online addictions have raised an incredible £48,000 for local charities. Please help us to reach our target of £50,000.
Paul Crowley has invited you to create your very own rainbow prints!

A Limited Edition of Rufus Country bags and purses featuring artwork by Nick Shipton.
"We have been following Nick's work for a while now and have completely fallen in love with it. Then the idea hit us, why don't we see if we can combine our worlds to create a collection of wearable art. So we booked a meeting with Nick, he was 'in' from the get go. Nick likes to take prepared surfaces and disrupt them with his art. So we gave him a collection of our bags and let him loose. What you see here is the result, 100% original artwork, 100% unique, designed and created in Hertford.”
