The Little Craft Shack is a Dorset based online company providing quality handmade Arts & Crafts.

It was started by two friends, Loz Walters & Katya Benedetto, who share a love of beautiful and unique gifts.

We are proud of our little online gift shop and each artist has been personally sourced and selected and brought together as a collection under The Little Craft Shack umbrella.

The Little Craft Shack supply local stores and hotels with a tailored gift range for customers & guests. We source, select and supply crafts which we feel compliment the business and tailor the crafts we offer to each individual outlet.The Hengistbury Head Visitor Centre and The Captain's Club Hotel & Spa  are among our current outlets.

The Little Craft Shack has an ever-growing presence on social media and customers can find our collective of Artists at select local events such as Mudeford Arts Festival where our #meetthemaker is popular with our customers.

The natural, upcycled and coastal element of our gifts drew the attention of “Litter Free Coast & Sea Campaign” and we were invited to The Chesil Beach Centre to host their event in association with Dorset Wildlife Trust.

In June 2019, for its 5th year, The Highcliffe Food Festival will bring Art & Craft to the popular festival. The Little Craft Shack will be coordinating all Arts and Crafts for this coastal community event.

We have more plans for 2019, including event management of more events and a craft networking and welcome you to follow our journey.

A little about Loz Walters & Katya Benedetto

Both of us grew up in the seaside town of Bournemouth and were drawn back to the Dorset coastline as adults, to raise our own families.

Our vision for The Little Craft Shack is to be an online store where unique handmade crafts & special gifts can be purchased to enhance any home. Much of the collection reflects our own passion for the Dorset coastline, the New Forest National Park and our love of nature and all things coastal.

We are always looking for talented artisans and portfolios of work to add to our collection at The Little Craft Shack. If you are interested in joining our collective, simply contact us using the link below.
