Gloucestershire Arts and Crafts Centre is now at 5 College Court, Gloucester (the approach road to the magnificent Gloucester Cathedral.)
Our beautiful shop supports a wonderful selection of local artists, who all live and work in Gloucestershire. The shop is manned by the artists themselves so do pop in and say hello and chat to a maker - you may find out how YOUR gift was made!
The shop stocks work made by artists and craftspeople living and working in Gloucestershire, including paintings, pottery, jewellery, textiles, handmade soap, handmade paper, furniture, baskets, glass and a huge variety of hand-made greetings cards.
Various art and craft workshops are availible through the centre to book in advance to try you hand at something new and creative! The spacious room holds about 6-8 people, depending on the needs of the particular class. For more information about running or attending a class, please contact us on 01452 307161.
