 THE LITTLE CRAFT SHACK is a creative community of individual makers, designers & artists.
Clicking the SHOP HERE will take you to our directory of makers, workshops & more.
We invite you to browse & buy directly from the maker.
Supporting local, independent & handmade has never been so important.
And the added bonus is you get a unique, bespoke & inspirational gift which also puts a big smile on the maker's face.

Each Artisan's profile links to their websites, social media and gives contact details.
 Our creative community of makers is curated by The Little Craft Shack.
This keeps quality high & enables us to offer you some of the finest local creatives.

We love bringing together independent designers. We all work independently from workshops, studios, box bedrooms, garden sheds and anything else our creative imaginations can think of (as we are a resourceful bunch too!)
 So join us in celebrating all things handmade, click SHOP HERE #supporthandmade and #meetthemaker. Thank you

A Little More About Us

The Little Craft Shack are proud to work with The Captains Club Hotel & Spa who support The Little Craft Shack and our handmade community.

We supply a tailored selection of local Art & handmade gifts in their reception area.

Additionally, The Little Craft Shack became Arts & Crafts curators for festivals in 2019 when we invited some of our community to the established Highcliffe Food Festival.

The festival was rebranded The Highcliffe Food & Arts Festival and was a phenominal success. We are now in the process of curating The Little Craft Shack Arts & Crafts Village for the 2022 festival.

We curated the Arts & Crafts for the first Burley Festival, in the heart of the New Forest. We provided the festival with a fantastic selection of Arts, Crafts, workshops, craft displays & hands-on experiences for both young and young-at-heart. The weather was scorching hot and again we had a fantastic, successful event. 

We are creatives ourselves and love to take part in our group exhibitions, festivals and events.
