Bonhoga means ‘my spiritual home’ and we hope the gallery has become a home for the arts in Shetland.
Bonhoga Gallery opened in April 1994 at Weisdale Mill and is one of only two four star rated visitor attractions in Shetland. Ten shows are held each year in the Upper Gallery featuring a varied programme of local, national and international art and craft. Also changing ten times annually are the shows in the Lower Gallery, a dedicated space for take away art and craft as well as an exhibition space for both Shetland and the UK’s leading craftmakers.
Also on the premises is a gallery shop stocked with an ever changing array of design-led and innovative products, cards, specialist books and an inspiring range of hand made papers.
The Gallery Café is situated in the south-facing conservatory on the lower ground floor overlooking Kergord Burn and has become very popular with locals and visitor alike. The selection of fresh food, much of which is locally produced, and includes arguably the best scones in Shetland, is complimented by a tempting range of hot and cold drinks.
Year Established: April 1994
