we had be told to visit here by the ladies at Court Barn, it was here that the Hart family had been working silver for over 100 years. We were able to look round the workshop, unchanged over the years and full of so many tools all we were assured still used, worth a visit.

Several small art shops here, and a cozy cafe. Don't miss the David Hart silversmith - he is a direct descendant of the Guild of Handicrafts that was established here in the early 1900's. This is the only surviving workshop of that beautiful era of handmade art. Everything is exquisite (and quite expensive). But for about US$130 you can get... More

The gallery has a wonderful collection of products from different artisans. We were able to buy some lovely gifts for friends back home, although there were also many beautiful objects that were too large, heavy or fragile for us to transport!

Occasionally in weekend formats such as cocktail parties, there's a modest debate distinguishing between the properties of Art and Craft. Is there such a thing as bad art or brilliant craft? Do the fruits of the one tend to be envisioned as subtle genteel touches by means of sensitive fingertips and the other calloused poundings driven by toughened sinews? Is... More

Go back in time and visit this traditional workshop that has not changed in 150 years. See all the various tools, the filing systems hanging from the ceiling and the various mmebers of family business working. Order something special or see the shop next door.

The silversmith Harts is a remarkable survival, from the time of Ashbee and others, and when visiting do consider giving them a commission. The Gallery has a good range of affordable creations, and the Campden Coffee shop wears its heart on its sleeve, everything well-made, full of honesty, taste and flavour, with love and delight.
