A unique and exciting arts and crafts centre in the heart of the Somerset levels celebrating the work of Somerset’s most talented artist makers. We run courses, workshops, demonstration days and have a gallery shop open 7 days a week.



Somerset Crafts are a group of dedicated professional Somerset artists and craftspeople who have turned a vision into reality.

Having established a close working relationship with Natural England who own the site, the group set up and run Somerset Crafts which is an Arts & Crafts Gallery situated at the Avalon Marshes Centre, Westhay, Somerset, BA6 9TT,  close to Shapwick Heath.

Shapwick Heath is one of Britain’s most valued National Nature Reserves and a special jewel in Somerset’s crown. The rent that we pay to Natural England supports them in their valuable work.

The Gallery displays and sells unique, original hand-crafted items of exceptional quality – all produced by Somerset Crafts members. The artists occasionally hold exhibitions and demonstrations at the centre and should these be planned, they it will be posted on the News tab.

Please note that currently our opening days are Friday, Saturday, and Sunday; hours 11am – 4pm.

Enquiries from potential new members (who must live and produce work in Somerset)  are welcome, please visit the ‘contact’ page.
