The Crafthub C.I.C.
The Crafthub opened in May 2013 as a Community run social enterprise, providing an art and craft retail outlet and workshop space on Rousay.
The products on sale in the shop are a variety of unique, quality hand-made art and craft products mainly produced locally by art and crafts people living on our 3 islands, Rousay, Egilsay and Wyre, with a few selected items from the craft network in Orkney. The majority have been influenced by local traditions, heritage and the breath-taking surroundings of our islands.
When we opened we had 15 crafters exhibiting their products, there are now over 60 crafters, with an impressive range of quality hand made products including textiles, paintings, cards, wood, glass, photographs, jewellery, pottery and much more.
There are also regular traditional craft workshops at The Crafthub, for both adults and children to join, as well as informal drop in sessions and craft demonstrations. Please contact us for details, either by phone or check the website/facebook page.
Refreshments, seating area, free Wifi, Orkney Ice Cream, local leaflets, maps and information available.
