country crafts and creative

There is no getting away from the fact that much of Swale is rural. It is a place where some of the old country crafts are still in use or have been rediscovered by local artisans.

Perhaps as a continuation of this tradition, there is also a fine creative industry with many local artists creating spectacular works for the annual festivals held throughout the year. It is also a complementary narrative to the thriving business scene, with a range of creative businesses contributing back to the health of the local economy.

To experience these country crafts and creative arts try Creek Creative in Faversham or the Oad Street  Food and Craft  just outside Sittingbourne where you can take part in craft activities and purchase locally produced gifts and food.
