Rod Willis is now based at his studio gallery in the stunning Victorian courtyard at Maws, in Jackfield, where he works, and exhibits a selection of his artwork.
Maws Craft Centre is situated in the picturesque Ironbridge Gorge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, 1.5 miles from the historic Ironbridge. Housed in the refurbished Victorian tile factory of Maw & Co, once the world's largest tile manufacturer, the building now comprises a number of studios and shops. This constitutes a mix of galleries, artists, designers, artisan makers and independent traders: the Tile Press cafe; a plant shop; furniture upcyclers; a luxury chocolatier; a holistic therapist; a craft shop; an antique dealer; IT consultants, and media companies. The Maws courtyard is used throughout the year to host events including: open air concerts; World Heritage Site events; outdoor art exhibitions and seasonal fairs.
