The Great Eastern Craft Co-operative, or CRAFTCO for short, began in 1987 when ten local craftspeople formed a co-operative and opened a shop and gallery in Southwold Market Place. Five years later they bought a house in the High Street, originally a forge, which is now CRAFTCO.

With about 100 associate members, a core group runs and organises the shop. We meet once a month to discuss co-op business and consider newly submitted work.

We are always interested in encouraging new makers. Our aim is to provide a permanent showcase for contemporary applied arts from East Anglia.

Come and see our unique prints, ceramics, jewellery, textiles and toys.
If you are interested in ordering any item, please phone 01502 723211 during opening hours.
