Popped in here while visiting the House of Chilli, this is a big shed with lots of areas franchised off to various artists, dress makers, soap makers, chocolatiers etc, had a browse but didn't buy anything other than the chillies. Small cafe free parking.

This is an extensive craft centre on the Isle of Wight, this is a great place to visit if you like original, local crafting, ceramics, textiles, photographs and art. There are plenty of artists to talk to or discuss a purchase.
