About Corris Craft Centre
Situated in the foothills of Southern Snowdonia, the Corris Craft Centre is at the heart of a traditional slate mining village with the surrounding hillsides hiding miles of disused underground tunnels and caverns. The village of Corris, which can be seen from the Craft Centre, is a sea of Welsh slate rooves.
Now, there are 9 individual craft studios where the talented designer makers work. Find unique handmade items for your home, garden and gifts for others: rustic furniture, glassware, candles, chocolates, herbal lotions and remedies, jewellery, pottery, traditional wooden toys and multi award winning artisan gin are all made right here.
HANDS-ON AND FUN ACTIVITIES
There's lots of opportunities for hands-on fun too including pottery painting, candle dipping, chocolate making, herbal crafting and furniture building.
Y CROCHAN CAFE
At the centre of the Craft Studios is Y Crochan cafe where delicious local produce is used across the all-day menu. Look out for the monthly specials featuring fresh seasonal and local produce.
There's an outdoor seating area and a small childrens' play area.
WELSH FOOD AND DRINK SHOP
Linked via an archway from the cafe is Bwtri Y Crochan a Welsh Food and Drink shop where you'll find shelves of mouth-watering produce which has been grown, reared and produced often within a few miles of Corris.
EXCITING VISITOR ATTRACTIONS
The Craft Centre is also the starting point for the King Arthur's Labyrinth underground adventure, Lost Legends of The Stone Circle and the Corris Mine Explorers adventure (winner of The Best Activity / Experience in Mid Wales 2019/2020). There's also a Tourist Information Point.
Open throughout the season. You may find some of the makers working during the winter months but it's always worth checking, with the individual craftspeople before making a special journey (individual contact details can be found on the Corris Craft Centre website).
