Overview
More
Keeping traditions alive in the Conwy Valley, North Wales. At the new Bodnant Craft Centre, visitors can see a wide selection of traditionally made, local crafts under one roof. From needle felt to watercolours, from silver jewellery to ceramics. Bodnant crafters have been chosen for their art and craft skills and the majority use only locally sourced materials. Bodnant Craft Centre is located right next door to Bodnant Garden National Trust. There is no fee to enter the craft centre. Open 7-days-a-week, all year round. There is ample free parking, disabled access, refreshments and a children's play area on site.

We popped in whilst visiting the gardens. There is a nice variety of crafts on display. Would recommend having a look if you are at the gardens

After Hubby and I visited Bodnant Gardens on Tuesday, we browsed around the Craft Centre. I liked the water colour paintings by Tina Holley. We also had a look around the Garden Centre Shop but we thought a lot of the items were over-priced.

Well worth a visit. Good thing I didn't ask about shipping or I might have gone broke. Some local, some regional products but interesting to peruse. Not handicapped friendly.

Many things for tourists to buy and take home. Shipping was possible as well as carry out. All steps and no ramps.
