Golden Hare got its name from the 'Masquerade' book by Kit Williams. You may remember the nationwide hunt for the golden hare amulet in the early 80's. A series of riddles and clues throughout the book led to the place where a gold hare was buried. The secret location was actually in Ampthill park itself and It seemed only right to name the gallery after this beautiful item and story.The gallery has a selection of handmade work ranging from a birthday card, to a little bowl or book for under £20, a Special gift for a wedding or a birthday present for under £100. To beautiful original paintings and works of art for up to £1000.
Laura, the owner of Golden Hare handpicks artists from around the UK and her style and passion for visual merchandising is evident in the gallery. Laura started the business after attending a Princes Trust ‘Explore Enterprise’ course aimed at young adults with a business idea. Over the course of a week young entrepreneurs are taught by experienced business men and women all the aspects of running a business.The gallery will be running courses, and will host different events throughout the year. There is also a selection of the work on the website and more information about the artists.
