As a family of passionate crafters, we thought it would be a great idea to spread the word as to how relaxing, productive and satisfying crafting can be and we have established Crafticalia to provide drop-in resources, workshops, courses together with fabric, wool and equipment sales to help like minded crafters discover their talents, develop skills and try new ideas with minimum outlay.

We are based at Abbey House Studios, in Tintern just North of the famous Tintern Abbey, the jewel of the outstandingly beautiful Lower Wye Valley.

With a comfortable flat situated above the studios Crafticalia can also offer residential tuition and retreats in a variety of crafts, with use of all facilities ... with or without instruction and tailored to your precise requirements. The perfect get away with a few like minded friends! Give Fran a call to discuss your ideas 01291 680089.
