Corris Craft Centre

Groups and school parties can browse our exciting collection of 9 craft studios, immersing themselves in the creativity. There’s always 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 Craft Centre is free.

Groups and Schools may also like to book themselves onto a hands-on fun session. All sessions, which are run by the designer-makers themselves, inspire exciting creations which can be taken home. Prices vary for the different crafts.
