  • Just seen a lady driver (red car, possibly and Toyota) not taking a blind bit of notice of someone walking their dog before she cut across the kerb and into the centre car park. Almost every day I see people enter and leave without paying attention to pedestrians and other road users. One day someone is going to get hurt.
  • I love this place.. first time I came here I spent 2-3 hours here. Now, I have a workshop here. The centre is attached to a special needs college. So students can be around from Monday to Friday, especially at break times 11am and 1pm. Also the car park can get very busy around 4pm as the students are going. Saturday is the best day to catch most if not all of the workshops open. I would advise anyone thinking of coming especially in a large group to ring beforehand to ensure the makers that you really want to see are in.
  • Tucked away gem with wonderful shopping for crafts. Meet the makers. Excellent coffee.
  • If you like glass you'll love this place
  • Interesting place but we went on a Monday when lots of the units were closed.
