The Little Craft Shack is a Dorset based online company providing quality handmade Arts & Crafts from local Artisans.
The Little Craft Shack was started by two friends, Loz Walters & Katya Benedetto, who share a love of beautiful and unique gifts.
For our online shop, we personally select each artist and bring them together as a collection under The Little Craft Shack umbrella.
Each Artist and Crafter has their own "little craft shack" on our website, which they can market to their customers.
The Little Craft Shack, as a company, also 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.
2019 launched us into events with the phenomenally successful addition of Arts & Crafts, curated by The Little Craft Shack, at the Highcliffe Food & Arts Festival We brought quality local Artists/Crafters to the festival for the first time and the event, now in its 5th year, was considered by many to be the best ever.
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.
A little about Loz & Kat
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.
