Workhouse Chapel

Workhouse Chapel,
Bath Rad,
Sturminster Newton,
DT10 1DS


Welcome to the Workhouse Chapel – a beautiful Grade 2 listed building which has been lovingly renovated and extended as the studio of local feltmaker, Rose Hatcher.
Her workshop is situated up in the vaulted timbers of the roof on the mezzanine floor, leaving the body of the chapel free to be used for exhibitions and courses.

For just two months each year this unassuming little Victorian Chapel metamorphoses into a glowing beacon of hope for all those who quail at the thought of the dreaded Christmas shopping trip. Dozens of very talented local elves and elfesses have been toiling all year in their workshops to make the most perfect hand-crafted gifts for those on your list (and we are absolutely certain you deserve a little something for yourself as well).

Featuring over 60 makers from across the South West selling high quality hand-crafted Jewellery, Ceramics, Textiles, Cards, Artwork and much, much more!

We look forward to welcoming you this year…
