About Us

Arts Desire was born from an idea to combine both a shop and craft area that would inspire customers to make & create.

Since its doors first opened in 2010 it has been filled with unique gifts and handcrafted product made by a variety of local designers as well as our in-house designer/maker Checka Barnham. To the rear of the shop is our Craft Lounge, a relaxed ares filled with a range of fabrics and craft kits,in the centre is a large table where customers can come and learn a new skill in one of our fun craft workshops.In addition to this we host kidcraft parties, and hen-days that include simple felting and sewing projects, lampshade making and  jewellery making. Our Arts Café is the perfect place to relax with a cup of coffee in a friendly environment. With this addition of our online shop and blog we hope that Arts Desire will be opened up to all those that want to join our world.
