    The Workhouse Chapel, Bath Rd, Sturminster Newton, DORSET, DT10 1DS

    10:30 am To 4:30 pm

    In November and December each year the Workhouse Chapel in Sturminster Newton becomes the most wonderful Christmas shopping venue – a selling exhibition of hand-crafted work from over 60 of the West Country’s finest makers and artists plus one or two from further afield. This is definitely not the average craft show!

    Browse amongst the most tempting of treats – you will surely want to buy a present for yourself as well as unique and beautiful things for those you love!

    Jewellery and lovely scarves for the ladies – silver cufflinks, leather belts and hats, metalwork and handmade boxes for the men –  artwork to adorn your walls – sculpture and ceramics – hand made baskets  – and so much more.

    A gallery to rival all others, just not at ‘gallery’ prices!

    If it all becomes too much,  put your feet up by the roaring log fire and enjoy a glass/cup of something warm and reviving whilst admiring the architecture.  Then just carry on shopping once you’ve got your strength back….

    We promise you a shopping experience like no other – and one we hope you will want to shout about.  Tell all your friends; better still, bring them along
