Craft CooP CIC......
Craft Coop has gained a reputation as a beautiful shop full of unique, handcrafted products, but it's more than just the go to shop for a special gift. As a social enterprise business, Craft Coop gives over 150 local craftspeople the opportunity to trade in a High Street shop, gives them business and social support, works with various charities and other organisations both in the shop and offsite, and helps bring vitality to the Town Centre.
Above all, Craft Coop is about Community. Local designers and makers - supporting and befriending each other, providing a warm and welcoming space where charities and community groups meet, sell, exhibit, and make, - and at the same time offering unique handcrafted treasures for lucky people to buy for themselves or for very special gifts.
From: Craft (noun): a profession or activity involving the skillful making of decorative or practical objects by hand.
