We're one of the leading craft galleries in the south west
THE GALLERY’S SHOP IS RUN BY A CO-OPERATIVE OF LOCAL DESIGNER MAKERS, EXHIBITING AND SELLING OUR OWN ORIGINAL WORK, AS WELL AS THAT OF SELECTED ASSOCIATE MEMBERS.
We are based in the heart of the lively port of Appledore – a traditional North Devon fishing village with a thriving artistic community.
There are many studios and craft shops dotted amongst the small winding lanes.
Members of The Appledore Crafts Company produce a wide range of work including metal sculpture, studio pottery, lino-cut prints, glass, ceramics, textiles, hand-made books, photography, furniture and jewellery.
In addition to the regular display of contemporary craft, The Appledore Crafts Company also holds occasional exhibitions.
A UNESCO BIOSPHERE
Appledore is an important meeting place of rich natural and cultural heritage in a stunning, diverse landscape in the heart of South West England.
A picturesque fishing port at the mouth of the river Torridge in North Devon. The old village of Appledore is a maze of narrow lanes running down to a long quay that follows the estuary towards the open sea. Appledore also sits within the UNESCO North Devon Biosphere Reserve, a suberb natural environment which stretches from Dartmoor and Exmoor to Lundy Island.
Over the years many artists and craftspeople have settled in Appledore and the village has become a hub of artistic activity. In addition to the numerous studios and galleries, there are a wide variety of events throughout the year.
