The Crafters is a retail co-operative, set up in 1998. We are a group of like-minded independent craft workers, who wanted to have a retail space in the high street that we could run ourselves.
Most of us have workshops tucked away in the country and only meet our customers - and each other - occasionally at craft fairs and local events. Joining forces has made it possible for us to have a shop to sell our wares, while at the same time being able to continue to run our workshops. We are now a thriving concern with thirteen members, supporting each other for our mutual benefit.
The Crafters offers a wide range of gifts for all occasions. From pottery, made to measure clothing, turned wood,children’s clothes, jewellery,art glass,silk and velvet scarves,hand-bags, hats, hand-made soap to prints and cards. In addition, we also have guest exhibitors throughout the year, bringing further variety, while at the same time giving an opportunity to other local craftspeople.

The gallery houses a jewellers bench where visitors can see work being made and also commission their own bespoke jewellery.
I specialise in high quality Woodturning and Bespoke Furniture.
I have been woodturning for a number of years and am a well accomplished turner specialising in many aspects of turning such as vases, natural edged bowls, platters, hollow forms and clocks. I also create artistic sculptural pieces. Most of the timber I use is native and locally sourced. As a registered professional turner, the high quality of my work has been formally recognised.
Bespoke furniture is made by commission to the customers exact specifications along with my own input. All furniture is handcrafted using traditional methods using high quality hardwoods.
