About Us

First step inside primaveraPrimavera is the foremost independent art gallery in Britain. The gallery and shop, located over three floors, bring together a vast range of the finest quality handmade British art and craft. Today showcasing the best collection of jewellery in Cambridge including representing local artists such as the Cambridge Jewellers Guild, we continue a 70-year history of also exhibiting the highest quality of ceramics in Cambridge and the most eclectic collection of glass art in the region. 

As a gallery, our aim is to offer artwork at a range of prices and to display and contrast makers’ work in a physical way so that each piece can be touched and felt, rather than maintaining an ethereal online presence through websites. We are similar to Open Studios, and art craft and jewellery fairs as we hold the range and variety, yet for your pleasure and convenience we are open seven days a week throughout the year.

In addition we can boast a beautiful location opposite King’s College in the heart of the cultural city of Cambridge as well as being in such an historic building where the famous poet Charles Lamb and his wife lived for many years on our first floor. Read more about our history on Wikipedia and we ask people to kindly interact with this page in order to keep it up to date. Thank you!

Throughout the year the gallery hosts a programme of temporary, engaging exhibitions. Our smaller sister craft gallery in Cambridge can be found on the corner of Magdalene Street and Northampton Street.

We recently exhibited pieces at Goldsmiths, take a look this beautiful piece by Abigail Brown for one example: https://www.goldsmithsfair.co.uk/exhibitors/abigail-brown/

We also have some of the best jewellery in Cambridge from craftsmen that supply their original pieces exclusively to us, these simply must be seen and felt in person to be fully appreciated.

Please visit us and indulge yourself in our collection.
