Beautiful pottery - very different and tactile. Some lovely knitting, with hats, socks, scarves and other things available. I bought hand-knitted socks that are fun and keep my feet toasty warm

One of several artists studios in ex-military camp. Rather different offerings and worth visiting if only to see what is being made.

As well as the great ceramics there's some wonderful peg loom woven textiles, and affordable pocket money pieces. We've been a few times and the women in the shop when we've visited have been really friendly.
