Discover the Craft Village
Visit the Craft Village and find unique handmade gifts a world away from everything the high street has to offer. Plus you can often see the crafters demonstrating their skills. Entry to the Craft Village is FREE.
The Craft Village is open Tuesday to Sunday throughout the year plus we have Farmers’ Markets held on the second and last Saturday of the month, plus regular Brocante Markets and often have special events.
Follow the links below for information on the Barleylands Craft Studios:-
We have over 60 different crafts in our village but to help you to find what you are looking for we have listed them under categories. Feel nostalgic from coal smoke at the blacksmith’s forge and be mesmerised by glass blowers. Commission unique pieces or create them yourself at one of our daily classes. Paved level surfaces and lifts to first floors mean easy access for wheelchairs and pushchairs around the village.
Barleylands Farmers’ Markets are buzzing and packed full of delicious, fresh, local produce from the farmers and growers.
The Craft Village is open from Tuesday to Sunday all year round (see full details of opening times) except on the weekend of the Essex Country Show (2nd weekend in September) where the Craft Village will only be accessible once you have purchased an entrance ticket into the show.
