Our contemporary craft gallery and shop offers an unparalleled selection of  handmade Scottish crafts made by our network of talented artisans. All of the work in our gallery is made by hand, in Scotland by the talented tutors and creatives we work with through the craft and jewellery schools. We have gifts for every occasion, including silver jewellery, textile accessories, woven homewares, quirky ceramics, and a lovely selection of  cards to go with them.

We are open for browsing and chats six days a week. Drop in and have a look around, pick up a special gift, or book yourself a workshop!

Accessibility is at the forefront of all of our activities, and improving social inclusion within the craft sector is one of our main objectives. As part of our remit to remove barriers to access we aim offer subsidies on craft and jewellery workshops held in our high street workshops. Subsidised places on our workshop programmes are supported by ongoing fundraising activity including grants from private trusts and public funding bodies, and from community giving through our ‘Pay It Forward’ scheme. We offer to eligible groups and individuals to attend workshops at the Central Scotland School of Craft and the Central Scotland School of Jewellery when funding is available to support them. Visit the craft and jewellery school  websites for details of current funding available.

Our stated objectives are:

  • to promote contemporary craft and support local craft makers
  • to remove barriers to participation in creative learning
  • to reduce social exclusion in the creative sector
  • to bring the provision for creative learning in rural locations in line with that available in the urban centres


Throughout 2022 we embarked on a programme of eco-focussed workshops and activities supported by Creative Scotland. We distributed upwards of £3000 in individual bursaries enabling people to attend courses focussed on sustainable crafting and best material practise

CLLD supported an outreach programme enabling us to run a series of free workshops to socially excluded groups. We are working alongside Stirling Carers, support groups for New Scots, and local groups within the community to provide respite and inspiration 

We were delighted to be part of Stirling Council’s ‘Get Together’ project, who have facilitated our Cosy Crochet Mondays. Funding allowed us to make this course more accessible by offering it on a ‘pay what you can basis’, removing cost as a barrier and allowing more people to participate


 Sustainability is at the heart of our business and the Schools are established hubs for environmental and ethical making, aiming to promote hand skills as a tool for sustainable living. Our programme of eco-focussed workshops aims to educate future makers by highlighting environmental best practice while respecting the traditional skills of hand making. 

Our re-use hub for craft books, tools and materials rescues unwanted goods from landfill.  We welcome donations of good quality, usable craft materials, tools and equipment, that we will either pass on for use within our programme, redistribute within the community, or sell on to raise funds to support the subsidy programme. Contact if you would like to make a donation. All profits feed back into the running of the re-use hub and our subsidised workshop programmes.
