Arts & Crafts

For fans of arts and crafts, the North York Moors provide plenty of opportunities. Galleries in the region display work by local artists that is often deeply inspired by the scenery of the moors. Contemporary works can also be found with craft exhibitions taking place across the region showcasing both traditional and modern craft techniques used in new styles by a new generation of artists. Pottery making is a popular craft as it is fairly easy to get started. The area offers pottery workshops that both display and sell work by local craftspeople and give visitors a chance to have a try at it themselves.
