About This Book

From the Victorian cloth mills to contemporary studios, Stroud has a long and noble history of making things by hand. All around the valleys, makers are engaged in creating beautiful and useful objects, works of art and installations. Described by Jasper Conran as 'the Covent Garden of the Cotswolds', the district has the highest proportion of creatives in the UK. The unique geography of five valleys meeting at the town make the area a delight to visit, especially on market day when the place is buzzing with stalls, buskers and visitors. Here, Made in Stroud shop owner, Clare Honeyfield, brings to life the conversations she’s had with the many wonderful and talented makers and artists of the ever-popular Stroud.
