The studios have now settled into their winter opening with many opening Wed. to Sun like the cafe & Bwtri, others weekends. At Corris Craft Centre you'll find a great collection of craft studios, attractions and activities to keep the whole family entertained for hours. The 9 craft studios are home to talented designer-makers and their range of handcrafted items including pottery, jewelry, natural forest furniture, candles, glassware, herbal lotions and remedies, personalised wooden toys and gifts, handmade chocolates and award winning artisan gin. You can have fun making your own crafts in many of the studios. A collection of exciting attractions start from the Craft Centre including the King Arthur's Labyrinth underground adventure, Lost Legends of The Stone Circle and Corris Mine Explorers. You'll find delicious produce in Bwtri Y Chrochan, the Welsh food and drink shop. At the centre of all of the studios and attractions is Y Crochan cafe where a delicious all day menu is served.
