Dansel Gallery

Selling contemporary, handmade interiors in wood


DORSET ART WEEKS 2018! - Venue 240

Featured artists - Selwyn Holmes and Tilia Holmes


Dansel first opened in Abbotsbury in 1979 and was founded by Danielle and Selwyn Holmes initially, only showing work produced from their own workshop.


Since then it has grown and has collected an ongoing archive of unique work from other designer makers working in wood right across Britain, which has become a centre piece of the Abbotsbury visitor scene.


It now has a superb collection of work from some 200 artists exhibiting their innovative designs and unique styles displaying contemporary woodwork at its best, all of which is available for purchase.
