The Craft Works Torbay

The Craft Works Torbay About Us.

The Craft Works is a community of artisans who have brought their skills together in one place, an old church near the beach in Paignton.

Moral Fibre, Agatha’s Closet, The Spinning Shed and Dartmoor Tweed needed a home where they could share their skills, experience and enthusiasm and involve the community in a publicly interactive workspace, so the idea of the Craft Works was born.

Between us we are offering a range of crafting workshops for you to enjoy, the opportunity to watch and get involved in what we do, workspace within a creative environment for anyone who wants to bring their projects and join us, exhibitions, events and of course, lots of tea and cake.

St Andrews Church sits along from Paignton Harbour. Built of our local red lime stone its an amazing space that close to the Bus Station, the Train Station and the beach. We are also lucky to be able to offer free parking on site.
