Come and be inspired...

Broadwindsor Craft Centre also hosts a number of independently run craft studios. Each one has something that would appeal to everybody, both young and old. They offer a variety of lovely gifts and a fascinating insight into the craftsmanship that goes into producing their produces. You may be inspired to have a go yourself at one of the craft workshops, or purchase some materials to take home. 

On selected Sundays during the spring and summer months Craft fairs are held in the front court yard, see the Diary Dates for details. All of the craftspeople are very passionate about what they do and are always ready to chat to visitors about their work, so why not come along and see for yourself!

Please note that opening hours of individual craft studios may vary - studios and times are listed below
If you are coming a distance, it may be advisable to call your chosen craft studio, to make sure they will be open and avoid any disappointment on the day of your visit.

You may be surprised to find a shop like Earth Design nestled in a small Dorset village. Here you will find an amazing choice of gifts from around the world, many unique within the UK.

Inside you will find quality gold and silver gemstone jewellery, beautiful stone sculptures for the home or garden and natural stone vases with incredible vibrant colours. 

You will not believe the intricacy of the patterns on the animals made from Fimo Clay and the amazing natural beauty of the crystals with their beneficial healing energy. 

All of this, in an environment enhanced by the perfume of natural essential oils, relaxing music and a collection of inspiring books which will make your visit something special.

Malcolm Giladjian

Malcolm is of Armenian descent and comes from a line of Professional and Amateur artists.

He has been living and working from his home in Brittany, not far from the Pink Granite coast line. This is where his boat painting started. He has now returned to his family roots in Dorset.

Malcolm paints with oil and mixed media, his work has a visionary quality, charged with energy.

Malcolm Giladjian was born in Dover in 1953. Brought up and education in Woking Surrey.
In 1968 he did a City and Guilds Apprenticeship in Blacksmithing, which involved Sculpture and Design at Quinnells in Surrey. In 1988 Malcolm studied Art and Architectural Design at Brook House College of Art in Wiltshire and gained a Diploma with distinctions.

Malcolm has always been interested in the way in which nature plays its part in creating many illusions with colour and light. He stated there are many times where the eye will take in tricks formed through light and colour that may alter the visions and view. In other words he goes on to say nature is giving us the opportunity to see things how it should be viewed. He also states that nature itself works with the colour and light. It's how the natural world has evolved. The reflections in water burst with colours, each ripple acting as an individual mirror showing off its surroundings in a splendid way. Some of his work is so full of colour that people say that it makes them feel happy. One would describe his work as being of an abstraction of nature where the essence of the subject is still there without the detail reducing the subject to dominate shape and patterns.
The magic of that yellow light that makes Bluebells sing. Malcolm's work shows freedom. It breaks down the boundaries and opens eyes to how they see the natural forms and shapes.
