Craft Arena provides needlework, knitting and craft supplies, haberdashery, beads, books and textile gifts for adults and children. We hold regular demonstrations and workshops in our Textile Art Studio at Barleylands Craft Village, Billericay, and showcase the work of local textile artists in our dedicated gallery space.

If you think you can't, we'll prove you can!

If you think you can't create wonderful works of embroidery and textile art, think again. We can show you how you can make your own pictures, book covers, hangings etc. in one our workshop sessions, taking you through the design process to completion. If you prefer working from kits, we can help with that too.

Take a look at our workshop pages and contact us for more information.
