Crafty Diane Gift Shop, Art Gallery & Craft Workshops

Opened in August 2022 Crafty Diane Gift Shop, Art Gallery and Craft Workshops is an Arts and Crafts Centre located at the picturesque Bridge House Marina on the beautiful Lancaster Canal between Preston and Lancaster.  On the marina is a caravan site with fabulous facilities which are perfect for a weekend stay and the Marina also offers a coffee shop and free parking.   The centre won the Garstang Town Council 2023 "New Business of the Year" award.


The aim of the centre is to showcase local arts and crafts, to promote mental well being, and make original art affordable.  The gift shop and gallery offers a wide range of arts and crafts, made by local artisans and crafters, and is the perfect place to pick up a unique and special gift.


Owner Diane specialises in providing workshops for all abilities and ages 7 and up.  Workshops include fused glass, stained glass mosaic, steampunk mixed media, silk painting and decoupage, as well as beginner watercolour courses. This provides the opportunity for friends, collegaues, and families to enjoy the workshops together. The Centre also runs 2 weekly community art groups; the "Crafty Arty Natter" and metal well-being groups.  Refreshements are provided for free on all courses.  


The centre can cater for corporate events and parties for both children and adults.  Space is available for visiting artists and crafters to hire to run their own workshops.
