Well-made, handcrafted goods and traditional skills were the ideals behind The Arts and Crafts Movement and are alive today, in abundance in the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley.
The stunning scenery and landscape of the Forest of Dean has long been an inspirational place to many writers, artists, poets and craftspeople and the arts and crafts scene in the area is vibrant and diverse, from weavers to jewellers, potters to painters, musicians to photographers.
