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.
Funky, bold and contemporary fused glass jewellery, tableware, tiles, garden features and giftware. Every piece is intended to make a statement. Inspirations such as art deco, Thai temples, coral reefs, the natural world, screen printing and the digital world infuse the work.

Bryony Knox designs and makes colourful, interactive pieces, covering various scales from kinetic brooches to automated sculptures. Movement is intrinsic to the design and inspiration is derived from sources as wide as Greek myth, vaudeville and circus. She works in silver or copper, brass and steel, utilising their different colour combinations and patination to enhance the richness of the object. Repousse, chasing, fretwork, etching and simple mechanics are the main techniques she employs in her work. Bryony exhibits throughout the UK whilst also undertaking private and public commissions.
From our workshop nestled in the East Lothian countryside we aim to create timeless, graceful and sophisticated furniture that works equally well in stylish domestic spaces and contemporary contract environments.
