Coastal Creatives

Local Creatives

This gallery come gift-shop located in Ilfracombe High Street is teaming with artworks and artisan products that have been handmade locally by artists, illustrators, designers and makers.

Visitors and locals will be able to find one-of-a-kind and low edition items at the well-stocked emporium, curated by proprietor Kerensa Ward.

Art lovers are catered for with an eclectic array of artists prints, typographical artworks, hand-painted cards and curios.  The store also boasts hand-crafted accessories and textiles, such as colourful crocheted scarves, knitted hats, headwear and applique pieces.  Jewellery and glassware that you won’t find elsewhere are on show and glass beads are made on-site with one-to-one sessions available to anyone keen to learn how to make their own.

Visitors and residents will find something for everyone, whether it’s a unique memento for a friend or loved one or something for the home.  Candles, room diffusers, decorative items and affordable objet d’art in plentiful supply.

An independent treasure trove that offers a platform to the talent in the area, residents may see the virtue in shopping locally in support of their community.  Meanwhile the homeward bound – leaving this beautiful coastal haven behind – can take a little piece of Ilfracombe with them.
