Living on an island there is not always a great deal to keep the kids busy on rainy days, but this place is a must and definitely not limited to just rainy days. Now there is a paint your own pottery area filled with so many choices, from mugs to plates, ornaments to hanging lanterns and even Christmas decorations so we can now spend a happy few hours perfecting our creations whilst having time to browse in the shop which is stocked full of locally made gifts, ranging from jewellery to handmade children’s clothes, local paintings, ornaments and many bespoke items. I love shopping here for gifts as always guaranteed to get something unique and local. Whilst painting or creating there is also tea/coffee/hot chocolate on offer as well as biscuits.
Also having children there are a range of parties available, like the lantern making which was a fantastic party for my 7 year old daughter, there is also screen printing (t shirts and tea towels), I believe these parties are not just limited to children but many adult parties including hen and baby shower. I also noticed a screen printed tea towel which had been used as a wedding invitation! I wish I had had these amazing ideas when I was getting married. There are also courses run here from sewing to art classes so great for socialising and meeting new people.
The setting is also beautiful, tucked away in St Peter Port with home grown veg for sale and herbs which can be picked and taken. The dahlias next to the greenhouse are stunning.
Run by friendly people who are passionate about art and stocking locally made products, I just hope more people make the most of this wonderful local business.
