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 have set up a craft centre and gallery at the Avalon Marshes, Shapwick Heath, one of Britain’s most valued nature reserves and a special jewel in Somerset’s crown. Twenty Percent of every sale is given to Natural England to support them in their valuable work.
The Centre displays and sells unique, original hand-crafted items of exceptional quality – all produced by Somerset Crafts members. The artists also run workshops, exhibitions and demonstrations at the centre.
The centre is open all year round, 7 days a week from 10am – 5pm.
Enquiries from potential new members (who must live and produce work in Somerset) are welcome, please visit the ‘contact’ page.
