Nice little shop with amazing silk ties and nice scarves. Toile with Clovelly scenes designed for early 20th-century owner of village. Friendly conversation. Near donkey stables and pottery and soap shops.

Thank you so much for your lovely review. The beautiful scenes in our Clovelly Toile de Jouy were drawn by celebrated artist Rex Whistler in 1932 and the village has changed very little since he drew them. We do hope you'll visit us again in the future.

My Son bought me a Devore course for my 60th Birthday and I was really excited to attend and learn about this facinating craft. I had not expected to enjoy it so much! The devon cream on top of the whole day was to be working with Ann and Bill Jarvis. What lovely people. We spent the day together, chatting, cutting patterns and laying out my scarf then screen printing and finishing. What a miracle, out came a beautiful scarf. If you want a very out of the ordinary experience in a unique and wonderful village then dont hesitate and book today.

I can fully understand the glowing reviews from people who have been on courses here, or from people who are enthusiastic about arts and crafts. Perhaps even simple shoppers who gave a particular passion for silk will ring its praises. As someone who popped in as part of a general trip to the village however, all I can add is that it was fine. It's a tourist shop with silk scarves and stuff to buy.

Thank you for your feedback, it's a shame you weren't feeling a little more inspired following your visit to our workshop, and that our selection of textiles, scarves and accessories weren't to your taste - but we continue to hand print our designs at the workshop, using time honoured skills and hope you'll visit again on your next trip to Clovelly.

I was lucky enough to be given some money for my birthday and thought I would treat myself to something different. So I contacted Ann by email and asked if I could come on a course to learn about it. We arranged it all and I duly turned up, thinking there would be others there but I was the only person and had her undivided attention. The course was truly fascinating and inspiring. I was given a bit of background about the process and then left to make up my own design. I was terrified it was going to turn out weird but Ann and Bill both were very positive and supportive and kept telling me it would all look wonderful. They were there all the time once the process was begun and I felt very empowered. Once my scarf was completed I just wanted to carry on and make more. Sadly I didn't have time for that. A lot of people came in to the shop whilst I was learning and they were fascinated to see the process in action. Do check out the shop's website for more information about the courses run. Trust me, this is a course for beginners - I hadn't got a clue before I started but I am very very enthused to learn more now and am looking at a possible course at my local adult education college to help me build up my new-found skills. Try it you won't be disappointed!
