    Corris Craft Centre

    A hive of interconnected hexagonal workshops for potters, glassblowers, gin distillers, wood turners, candle-makers and chocolatiers, along with a cafe to keep everyone productive, the Corris Craft Centre is an excellent place to see artists and craftspeople at work, join a short workshop or pick up some souvenirs. It's just outside Corris, on the A487.
