Happy New Year from Blaenavon

Artie, Nick and Wendy would like to wish you a very happy creative New Year.

We had loads of fun with the build up to Christmas and enjoyed meeting our customers helping to create ideas for the festive season. Since the shop re-opened after Christmas there has not been a day when someone hasn’t visited and mentioned that the presents they gave or were given were much appreciated.

We are now getting ready for Valentine day and Mother’s Day and have some craftie ideas for you to celebrate.

Since we opened we have had the opportunity to capture many smiles of all ages in our studio. After so many years of taking portraits Nick still gets the buzz of capturing the perfect image. The feedback has often brought a tear of pride to his eye and with that in mind it’s not that long until Valentine Day and Mother’s day– wouldn’t it be good to add a special image to your home of the special person in your life. Thought you would like to see a photo shoot from start to finish.


Come in and talk to us and we can put together the perfect image for you to keep that will make you smile.

Popin and say hello

The festive season is upon us and at Artie Craftie in Blaenavon we have stocked up with loads of interesting craftie ideas to make your Christmas go with a smile!  During December we will have some special offers for you to take hold of and be craftie with.

Pop in and say hello to us at Blaenavon’s Winter Wonderland event on 6th December and meet Phil from Carigon Woodcraft who is supplying us with super hand carved Welsh Love Spoons and he will engrave an initial onto any that you buy on the day free of charge in our workshop.

On 9th December we will be exhibiting at Greenmeadow Community Farm, Cwmbran at their Christmas evening.
