The Craft Area

We have an amazing heritage of craft and tradesmanship in the UK. In years gone by, various skills and techniques were passed down through families or guilds keeping traditional arts and crafts alive and healthy. However, as the industrial revolution kicked in, the need for beautiful, bespoke, useful everyday items started to wane and with them the loss of livelihoods for artisans.

At Shambala, arts and crafts workshops will always remain high on the agenda. The satisfaction a person gets from using their own hands and creativity to fashion objects is second to none – it soothes the soul and feeds the mind.

All workshops listed run until roughly 5pm each day. Some are drop in, some you need to book a slot, so have a wander, chat to the crafts folk if you’re keen to get stuck in, and they’ll advise!
