The Little Craft Shack is a small independent business based in the picturesque county of Dorset. We provide wonderful handmade Arts & Crafts from British Artisans.

In 2017, The Little Craft Shack began trading online, at local craft fairs and through select outlets.

Since then, we have grown organically and now have a customer base throughout the UK with bespoke orders to France and USA.

We are now a thriving community of independent artists, creators, makers and designers offering unique handcrafted gifts.

The Little Craft Shack is lucky to be based in picturesque Dorset on the South Coast of England. We also have the New Forest National Park on our doorstep. This inspirational landscape can be seen in the work of many of our Artisans although we now attract creators from Cornwall, Kent and further afield.

The Little Craft Shack was started by two Dorset-based friends, Loz Walters & Katya Benedetto. In the early days we scouted local craft fairs and personally selected Artists and Crafters, bringing them together as a collection under The Little Craft Shack umbrella.

Today, we have established a large community with every Artist & Crafter having their own webshop under the umbrella of The Little Craft Shack.

The Little Craft Shack are also curators of Arts & Crafts for local events and festivals.

In 2019 we curated the Arts and Crafts at the first Burley Festival, in the heart of the New Forest.

We are extremely proud to have successfully introduced Arts & crafts into The Highcliffe Food Festival in its 5th year. This 5th annual festival was a phenomenal success with many saying it was the best ever. The festival has subsequently been renamed The Highcliffe Food and Arts Festival and this has become our annual passion.

The Little Craft Shack also supplies local stores and hotels with tailored gift ranges for their customers. We source, select and supply crafts which we feel compliment the business and tailor the crafts we offer to each individual outlet.

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.

We have more plans for our future, including curating & bringing arts & crafts to more events. We welcome you to follow our journey.
