Margins Bookshop: Our base in the centre of Wetherby

What is Margins about?

Margins Bookshop is located at 2 Church Street in Wetherby. We offer second-hand books for sale as well as providing a place for people to drop in and chat, browse the books and bring in their own books for us to re-cycle.

We also hold occasional activities to help support and serve our community.

The shop is normally open from 10am to 2pm, Tuesday to Saturday. We are not open on Mondays.

Sunday worship still takes place at Deighton Gates School at 10.30am.

ArtSpace at Margins

Local artist displays

As well as selling second-hand books, we also provide space for local artists and photographers to display their work.

This is free of charge, although we do levy a 10% charge on any sales.

Our current display is of paintings by Dr Iain Will, who is making a welcome return to ArtSpace.

Iain's original oil and acrylic paintings are inspired by everyday scenes from around Yorkshire, including buildings, people and wildlife. His style is representational, which he describes as "somewhere between impressionism and realism" and occasionally reveals a surrealist twist.

He is inspired by vibrant and complementary colours, and he begins a painting by thinking about how the colours will work together to give his work a contemporary feel. "Colour", he says, "is a very powerful tool for creating mood."

The painting below is entitled 'Snowy Stroll Around York.
