Crafts charity Devon Guild of Craftsmen has rebranded to MAKE Southwest ahead of redevelopment plans.
A spokesperson said the new name reflects the many women involved in the gallery and its focus beyond Devon.
The charity plans to restore its Grade II-listed mill building to improve accessibility, restore its waterwheel and create new maker spaces for craftspeople.
MAKE Southwest Chair Louis Victory said the works will turn the building into a “creative place in its own right”
“Although the early months of the pandemic were difficult, we are now operating successfully, having taken the opportunity to modernise and plan for an ambitious and exciting future.”
