Corris Craft Centre offers a variety of experiences and we welcome coach groups, groups and school groups of all sizes to browse and enjoy the 9 individual Craft Centre studios and to participate in the hands-on and fun activities offered by many of the studios. There is a coach drop off point right next to the main entrance and parking is free throughout the day.

Coach groups, groups and school groups can browse the exciting collection of 9 craft studios, immersing themselves in the creativity. There’s generally someone to watch either making or creating something handmade and unique. There’s just a short walk from one studio to the next. Entry to the Corris Craft Centre is free.

Coach groups, groups and school groups can also enjoy the range of hands-on and fun craft making activities. All of the craft experiences, which are run by the designer-makers themselves, inspire fabulous creations which can be taken home and enjoyed. Prices vary for the different experiences.

The collection of hands-on fun craft making activities includes pottery painting in the Quarry Pottery where groups of up to 20 people can paint together, the making and decorating of a quality Belgian chocolate bar in the Chocablock studio where groups of up to 12 people can create chocolate together, a candle dipping activity in The Candle Studio where up to 2 people can make a pair of candles every 15 minutes, furniture building workshops are run by the Taran Eco Designs studio and can be specifically tailored for groups of varying sizes.
