Riverside Gallery


Bay TemplateWhen David and Helen Pickering purchased the old Ynyscedwyn School in Pantyffynnon Road, Ystradgynlais, they took on a massive restoration project

Today Ysgol House is home not only to Classy Curtains Ltd, with its spacious workshop where Helen and her team produce exquisitely finished soft furnishings and bespoke curtains, but also a newly opened gallery.

It’s the perfect combination – an interior design business that can produce all your blinds, curtains and cushions, as well as paint and wallpaper and now you can pop into the gallery and select art for your walls and sculptures for your shelves.

Most of the artwork is by local artists, of which there are many in the Tawe Valley and beyond. There is something to suit most tastes and very importantly most pockets.

Jean Jones is pictured centre front wearing a bonnet in the play-ground on her first day at school.

The gallery is open Tuesday to Friday 10.00 to 5.30 and 10.00 to 3.00 on Saturdays.
