Art gallery and design multi-space, Sentient has relocated and is now found at Basement, 49 The Old High Street. The entrance is located at the bottom of the steps between Miss Ginger's and Rennie's. The new location takes more of a studio format without a shop front - a former studio has been converted into a discreet shop / multi-space and will be open to the public around 3 weekends per month and some selected week days (plus other days by appointment).

Rebecca Mason is an artist using light to convey the darkness within human life, existence and emotion. This is often accompanied by a dry, self-deprecating sense of humour and candid confessions aimed at recognising and accepting our imperfections.

Rebecca said: “I moved to Folkestone from East London in summer 2016 after being attracted by the sea, gorgeous architecture, creative community, opportunities and friendly locals.  It’s also the perfect base for me to get to London for exhibitions and my Hackney Wick studio. I have long had a dream of running my own gallery space and am thrilled to be opening my new hybrid gallery and design boutique, Sentient.”
