  • Not quite what I was expecting with high priced crafts and no one demonstrating crafts. Interesting as a short stop en route but I wouldn't necessarily go out of my way to visit.  more »

  • A curious attraction which struggles to find its identity as a business incubator for artisans or a gallery. In either case, the venue attracts some talented art and merits an occasional visit.
  • . Pleasant but all a bit sad. It was sad to visit the Ruthin Craft Centre. :-( So many people had invested time, effort, money and heart into setting up shops and exhibitions that were attractive but ignored by the public, unfortunately. I doubt if local people are much in the market for what they were selling, and this isn't Oxford with hordes of high-spending tourists milling around. I looked hard to see something to buy, but there was nothing that I needed, and one or two attractive items that caught my eye were priced out of my budget for a sympathy purchase. Sad, very sad. If you can spare 10-15 minutes to go there, it needs customers. But there is now precious little to buy, with a lovely Jewellery shop just closed. The concern I have is that the whole place will shut down, which would make the lovely Cafe-R homeless. It is the only thriving business there, and justifiably so since it is excellent. .
  • Great art works, great food and a free area for kids to try their hand at craft.
  • Always a pleasure to visit the craft centre, exhibition space, shop and café. The art exhibitions are usually well thought out and presented. We’ve just been to see Julia Griffiths Jones’ Room within a Room. It was very engaging and we enjoyed how light was used to enhance the work. Great!
  • Clean welcoming informative craft centre with the bonus of a excellent cafe
