Offering a wide range of handcrafted products, the Quarry Craft Co-op is an integral part of the Quarry Arts Centre having operated as an outlet for local artisans for over three decades.
The Quarry Co-op Shop stocks a wide range of art and craft including wood, pottery, glass, jewellery, silks and textiles, leather, bone and pounamu (New Zealand greenstone) carvings, weaving, sculpture and ceramics. With the shop being run by its members, you get a unique experience of being able to discuss the artworks directly with the artists.
The artists who make the work also run the shop so overheads are kept to a minimum – the result being a wide range of quality handcrafted products at very accessible prices. All purchases at the shop also come with a free gift wrapping service.
