Details for Somerset Crafts

Somerset Crafts is an Arts & Crafts Gallery in the heart of the Somerset levels, displaying and selling the work of artists and craftspeople living & working in Somerset. You can find us on the Avalon Marshes Visitor Centre at Westhay. Close by you can visit the beautiful nature reserves of Shapwick Heath, Ham Wall & Westhay.

The Avalon Marshes is an ancient wetland landscape on the Somerset Levels and home to a large variety of wildlife including a myriad of species of birds. The wetlands are also visited by many migrating species during the year. The spectacular starling murmurations that can be seen as the wintering birds flock to their evening roosts on the local nature reserve's reed beds are a sight not to be missed.

The Avalon Marshes landscapes can boast of Stone Age, Iron Age & Roman dwellers in their vast cultural heritage. Of note, the Sweet Track is a Neolithic timber walkway which was originally part of a network of tracks built to provide a dry path across the marshy ground on the Somerset Levels. Although the original is covered over for preservation, you can walk on a reconstruction on Shapwick Heath NR.

Inspired by these beautiful locations, our art & crafts works include ceramics, stained glass, jewellery, mosaics, oil, acrylic & watercolour paintings, photography, handmade soaps and beauty products, stone & wood sculpture, textiles, furniture, wood working & wood turning. All our products are unique, original and locally hand crafted of exceptional quality and value for money.
