Old style charm

Louise has the most wonderful array of gifts for sale, many made locally by artisans. Beautiful cards, jewellery and fabulous cane work, skilfully done by the lady herself. And when she’s not busy repairing beautiful cane work furniture she makes the most amazing marmalade. 😀

Lovely shop full of local crafts
Sep 2017 • Couples
This is a beautiful shop set out over 2 floors that showcases an excellent range of locally crafted work. The owner is lovely and uses the premises for her cane work. The goods vary widely from ironwork to knitted goods, felt working to preserves. A great place to search for presents.

Charming Place with a Gracious Knowledgable Owner
Jun 2017 • Couples
The Cane Workshop is a delightful surprise in this little village of Alston! The owner is a woman of tremendous skills and knowledge. The shop is filled with baskets, knitting, caned chairs and many, many handcrafted items of superior quality. We found it because our Back Roads Tour stopped in Alston for tea and touring....I am so glad we did! If your are in this region of England, do yourself a huge favor and make your way to Alston and to the Cane Workshop. It is fabulous!

Beautiful, beautiful place

Definitely go here!!! Gorgeous little shop full of beautiful things all locally made & fantastic quality - cards, bunting, photos & mainly woven chairs (not sure that's their official name!) but they're absolutely stunning. Also has beautiful throws & blankets. Superb quality. Owned by a lovely & incredibly helpful lady. Love shops like this.
