Nestled in the centre of Rowlands Castle, next to the excellent Village Coffee shop, is a delightful Art and Craft shop called Handmade Studios.
Linda Kirkbride MA, the owner, says “I have always loved textile work and while much of the stock is textile based we also have wonderful jewellery, prints, artist-made greeting cards, artists’ materials, art books and gifts.
One of our specialities is gorgeous wool and yarns for all who love to knit or crochet.”
A lovely place to browse around.
“We run craft workshops and ‘drop in’ sessions for those who love to chat and have fun while perfecting their skills”.
Linda has her own textile studio there as does Beverley Harris, who specialises in felt.

Open every day 10am to 5pm except Monday.
