  • art gallerys - HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!

  • a local textile artist. Lots of really good ideas for unusual gifts and stuff as seen in Country Living magazine
  • zara hussain of stile road contact urgent its yr father
  • SYPC does all sorts of sessions for youths like different types of Dance, Drama, Art, Music Production, DJing, and computer skills and TVU do the same sort of thing in the Summer and all of the courses are free if you're under 19. Theres also a drama class at the West Wing on Stoke Poges Lane which is really good and is currently doing a project. The people are really cool to.
  • Slough Musium..................
  • I went on your site a few weeks ago to find craft shops in slough, well since then i have found a fab craft shop in Langley, Slough, sells brilliant wools, card and scrap book crafts plus load of other bits. quite a good find.Lawsons craft shop, Langley High Street. K
  • Forget, Slough is such a cultural vacuum anything resembling art gets destroyed or has the piss ripped out of it for being "Gay"
  • King's highway music 49 the village shopping Centre slough Sell gifts and music and smoking papers
  • The only kind of art gallery I can think of in Slough is what gets exhibited at the end of the academic year at Langley college. Go support some local talent.
  • The indoor market (The Village Shopping Centre) is a great place although a little hard to find. I just got a picture framed really cheap, picked up new habby stuff and bought meat all in one visit. But watch out, it seems to change on a daily basis shops come and go all the time.
  • For art and craft materials your best bet is to get in the car and drive up the Bath road towards Taplow, past Sainsburys to the Bishops Centre.
  • Bugger all... i think the tweeist stuff comes on the endless market... anf the vaguely less twee on the french market when that comes, but seriously I have not seen one vaguely alternative shop, let alone trendy, and I come fro Loughborough,ebven they boast a higher mix of vaguely different. Unless I wanted to buy a present from top shop/next/ alders/ mand s i wouldn't know where to begin! Good old school games in the charity shops, but seeing there is a university campus kicking around, you'd think there's be the odd 'student' oreientated shop... have i missed the naff 70'ds nights and 'hippy chivk' - or something similsar named shops, if is slough just better the=an that. Would be nice to see the odd crafty/ jewellery/cardy shop though
  • Some art/craft complex on the way to taplow on the A4. Missus thinks it is brilliant!
  • you are having a laugh, although in the market they have a piercing shop.
  • None. No-one in Slough cares about the arts - unless you consider tatooing to be an art form, then I know someone who can do tatooes really cheap - he's blind in one eye and has a drugs problem though, so don't go in the morning coz he often has the shakes. He's very good though.
  • Arts and Crafts andSlough dont go together.....goto Windsor for this maybe. +
  • arts and crafts?! u should be so lucky! this is SLOUGH we're talking about but if u want makeup [which is kinda arty in a sense] then go to The Perfume Warehouse in the Observatory opposite topshop. lots of cheapo makeup there. if u want art galleries then i suggest u head up onto the parlaunt estate where we have the amazing art deco towers [stunning, take a camera], or u could go down to chalvey where u can muse at the talent of the local artists as they spray their names onto any clean wall within arms reach. lots of critical analysis to be done here. but we cant forget the amazing architecture of the power station towers. if u stare @ them for long enough they look lopsided. amazing.........must be some deep meaning in that. maybe everything in slough is bent..........hmmm.........
  • None in slough its just not that kind of place now Windsor and Eton yes Slough no

  • the centre on the farnham road do exhibitions every now and then. SYPC@the corner are currently setting up an arts academy to start later in 2001
  • There is the Slough museum!
  • Presence & Eye of the Storm (Hippy type shop)
  • Slough has a market that is quite craft like. Hardly like shops found in nearby Windsor though.
  • none, no culture in this god foresaken town
  • Some good graffiti down the train tracks linking slough and windsor.
  • There is a new wacky craft shop open in the Obseretry that sells lava lamps and inflatable sofas its called Precents.
