Sturminster Newton’s former Workhouse Chapel is now the studio of feltmaker, Rose Hatcher and home to Handmade for Christmas.

This unassuming little Victorian gem has been lovingly restored and extended to create a gorgeous studio and a bright and beautiful exhibition space. In November and December each year the Chapel becomes a wonderful Christmas shopping venue – a selling exhibition of hand-crafted work from 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 – even hand-made teddy bears for the young at heart; artwork to adorn your walls – sculpture and ceramics – hand made baskets – and so much more.

While deciding what gifts you would like to present to each of your friends and relatives, put your feet up by the roaring log fire and enjoy a glass or cup of something warm.
