Welcome, Guest. Please or to have your say.

Some of Bluecoat's retailers will be open from Monday 15 June. Retailers will be operating reduced opening hours and we recommend you contact individual shops for details. Our galleries, cafe and building remain closed at this time.

Located in the heart of Liverpool's shopping district, the Bluecoat houses a number of specialist independent retailers offering an eclectic range of beautifully designed handmade and unique products.

Stocking the best in contemporary craft, design, music, fashion and homewares, the shops at the Bluecoat should be your first destination in the city for the unique and the unusual. Use the links on the left hand side and below to see what each of our ten retailers make, sell and do.

Emily Motto on her New Contemporaries residency at Bluecoat

Emily Motto on her New Contemporaries residency at Bluecoat
This year we welcomed artist Emily Motto to Bluecoat for a year long residency as the 2019 New Contemporaries Bursary Studio Artist. New Contemporaries has supported UK arts graduates since 1949 and Emily was selected for their annual open submission exhibition in 2014 at Liverpool’s World Museum.
Here Emily talks to us about her work, how it feels to have been selected for the bursary, and what makes Liverpool such a great city for artists. 

1. Can you tell us a bit about your practice so far as an artist? What kind of work are you interested in making?

A brief introduction to etching

George Drought & Simon Roodhouse in the Bluecoat Print Studio, 1977

Etching is one of the oldest methods of printing still used today. In order to find out a bit more about this technique, we asked Print Studio Manager and Abacus artist Frances Disley to explain the process used in creating an etching print. As well as being the Bluecoat Print Studio Manager, Frances is also a practicing artist, based at The Royal Standard in Liverpool.
