The Arts, Craft and Hobby Centre at Cardwell Garden Centre

We have been operating our own arts, crafts and hobby department at Cardwell Garden Centre for many years. The benefit of running it ourselves is that we are able to cater for the local market, unlike chain stores.

Our arts and crafts centre is staffed by active crafters who are happy to offer independent advice and demonstrations to help you get the most from your hobby.

We stock a huge range of wool and knitting accessories, including top brands like King Cole, Stylecraft, Sirdar and James Brett. And with an extensive range of patterns always available, you will never be short of ideas!

Our artist’s supplies have become a favourite amongst Inverclyde artists with lots of canvasses, acrylics, sketchpads, varnish and much more always in stock.

Quality stationary is not easy to find in the modern world, but our well stocked department has everything you need, including large sheets of card, paper, envelopes and wedding supplies.

Another area that is becoming increasingly popular for us is haberdashery and sewing equipment. Modernising and upcycling of vintage clothing has never been more popular, but supplies of equipment are not as easy to find. Our comprehensive range means you can get what you need, when you need it.

Craft Centre opening times are:

Monday – Friday 09:30 – 17:00

Saturday & Sunday 10:00 – 17:30

Craft Fair

We also hold regular craft fairs at Cardwell, showcasing some of the area’s superb talent for creativity and flair. The dates for the next craft fair are available on the Events page of this website or by contacting the garden centre. The dates will also be advertised in local press and Reward Card holders will be advised by email.

Our crafters regularly hold classes themselves or invite some of our suppliers to come to Cardwell and hold pre-arranged classes or free demonstrations. You can find out when the next classes and demonstrations are by checking the Events page on this website or by contacting the craft centre by telephoning 01475 521536 or emailing info@cardwellnurseries.com.
