Supporting British artists, makers and designers

The Mulberry Tree has been a fixture on Swanage High Street for many years and we're one of the south coast's most popular independent galleries. 

We believe passionately in selling and supporting the work of British artists, makers and designers and in particular those that have a connection with our wonderful county of Dorset. It's a wonderful privilege to be part of their lives and to help them find new audiences for their work and support them in building a career that they love. We're lucky to have forged close ties with some of the most talented artists and crafts folk working today in Britain. We're also firm believers in giving, you our lovely customers, fresh inspiration for your homes - it's all about "making your home more beautiful"

We have an in-house framing service run by co-owner Steve who has been a framer for over 25 years, in fact since he left school at 17. We're very proud of our framing reputation and experience and all our frames are made to order. 

Come and visit us or browse our collection online for original paintings, limited edition prints, hand-crafted ceramics,  contemporary craft, custom-made jewellery, lifestyle and homeware products, and our legendary greetings card ranges.

Our tastes are as unique as the individuals we serve so you're bound to find that perfect gift for someone special, be it yourself or a loved one.

This exciting exhibition unites the Harding sisters Sasha, Sophie and Bess for the first time in their careers. 

They grew up by the seaside, in Purbeck’s finest playground. To return in adulthood to images of simplicity and natural beauty is a celebration of the things we cherish.    From messing about in rockpools, lazing on a beach towel on a gorgeous sunny day, to the cry of a single seagull against a brilliant blue sky, three very different styles but all showing their love and connection with the coast.

Sasha's sense of the absurd sparkles irrepressibly through her work but the lasting impression is one of great affection for her subject.

Bess Harding is a self-taught artist and illustrator.  She has been painting with oils for the past couple of years, and is most interested in still life. She seeks to capture the calm grace and quiet composure found in certain objects, exploring how inanimate objects can be so full of character and self-possession.

Sophie's new work is inspired by her life and and the everyday. These are all about simplicity, balance, harmony and colour. She is passionate about colour and the feelings colour evokes
