Welcome to the Sherwood forest Art and Craft Centre situated in the heart of Sherwood forest known as Robin Hood country. The Craft Centre exudes historic charm and is the place to visit to shop and eat.
The historic stable block, now reborn as Nottinghamshire’s largest Craft Centre with a courtyard/atrium where you can enjoy a meal or a cup of tea protected from the weather.
We have a range of stores on site selling locally produced gifts, treats and pamper products. See below for more info.
Handmade pens for every pocket all made on the premises.
After taking early retirement John Twiss moved to Nottinghamshire, and wanted a hobby to help fill his time. He had fond memories of using a wood lathe all those years ago at school, and that’s where it all began.
What started as a hobby has become a passion. He gets great satisfaction at the thought of something he produced being used and admired by other people.
All of his work is completed by hand. Some pens are made over the course of a few days, some in a day, whatever it takes to meet his exacting standards. John is continuously expanding the range of products he offers, call in and see the full range on display in his studio.Studio 10 Sherwood Forest Art and Craft Centre

All of her work is hand fabricated out of sheet silver and gold using traditional silversmithing techniques. Clare originally studied jewellery design and silversmithing in Sheffield in the mid 1990s. From then on her work has been heavily influenced by textures on metal and the tactile feel of finished pieces.
In 2012 Clare moved to her workshop and shop in the centre. Working under the eves of Sherwood, the country’s most ancient Oak forest, has been a great influence for Clare. The first collection she drew here has been the leaves of Sherwood collection. This collection can now be found in galleries from Scotland to London.
All of her jewellery is made by hand between her workshop in Sherwood Forest and her home workshop in Sheffield.Studio 2 Sherwood Forest Art and Craft Centre

Re-discover the art of relaxing and pampering yourself with Simpley Natural’s range of bath and body products using the natural gifts of salts and oils, combined with fragrances and botanicals to create a spa in the sanctuary of your home.
Simpley Natural is a concept that started two years ago built from family values and traditions by mother and daughter, Trisha and Tessa.
From their own experiences the stress, pressure and pace of life today can often leave us feeling stressed, tired and with a lack of self worth. The old traditional ways to relax, de-stress, unwind and the art of taking “me time” appear to have been forgotten.
Using nature’s gifts of salts, oils and fragrances, Simpley Natural aims to provide you with products to enhance your life and offer you the ability to take some time out for yourself, providing you with the opportunity to have the experience of a “Spa Day” in the sanctuary of your home.
While we need to look after our bodies we also need to look after our environment. Simpley Natural use minimal packaging and containers that can be re-used or re-cycled.Our products are developed, blended and packaged on site at our workshop in the heart of Sherwood Forest.We use all natural ingredients that are environmentally sympathetic (as is all our packaging).Studio 17 and 18 Sherwood Art and Craft Centre
