Dartmoor Craft Shops
Dartmoor is not just for sheep and ponies or even bird watching and rock climbing! It’s also a place that inspires many artists. We have several wonderful galleries on Dartmoor celebrating the unique skills and crafts of artists who have visited or been stirred by the wilds of Dartmoor or those of wider acclaim. It is well worth planning a trip to Dartmoor to see these diverse art venues.
In Moretonhampstead, on the edge of Dartmoor, a centre for walking, the town is becoming known for its arts too. The attractive converted Victorian schoolhouse of Green Hill incorporates a contemporary art gallery with a year round programme together with an arts and craft shop and a wide range of art-based courses and workshops for all ages and level. Smaller venues in Moretonhampstead display Dartmoor based photography and artwork and there are numerous studios around the town where you can learn about and purchase pottery, hand-made shoes and felt making amongst other skills.
Not far away, located in Bovey Tracey, the Devon Guild of Craftsmen is a large craft centre displaying stimulating exhibitions and events for people to buy, make and learn about contemporary craft together with a pleasant cafe where you can stop on your journey for coffee and cake or a delicious home-made lunch.
