The home of contemporary craft
Rufford Craft Centre comprises a gallery with a changing programme of exhibitions, Creative Learning Centre and seminar room all housed in the former stable block which dates from the 1660s.
The Craft Centre offers the opportunity to participate in workshops in a variety of art and craft forms through a programme of public creative workshops with professional artists.
We also offer an extensive education and outreach programme for schools and groups. A highlight of our programme is the annual Earth & Fire International Ceramics Fair, which takes over the Abbey grounds at the end of June each year.

Contemporary textile art group Fibrefusion are textile artists from Suffolk, Norfolk, Essex, Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire.
Each member of Fibrefusion has designed and created a body of textile art depicting their individual explorations of the theme. You will be surrounded by a broad spectrum of textile structures, both hanging, surface and wall mounted and sketchbooks revealing the artists' creative journey.
