Open Studios Online

As a result of the pandemic we are unable to open the building physically to visitors, however during what would have been our opening times we will be featuring lots of online activity where you can visit our studios virtually and meet our businesses through Instagram Live sessions. 

You can also visit our Facebook event to see lots of lovely unique, handmade original art and products, as well as creative services from our businesses.

We will have an Advent calendar during December where you will have the chance to win something lovely from one of our makers.
