The Maws Craft Centre is a collection of art, craft and design studios situated in the picturesque Ironbridge Gorge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, 1.5 miles from the historic Iron Bridge. Housed in the refurbished Victorian tile factory of Maw & Co, once the world's largest tile manufacturer, the buildings now comprise independently run studios - a mix of artists, designers & makers, galleries, a plant shop, the Tile Press caféa chocolatier, a craft supplies shop, the Gorge Parish Council office, IT consultants and media companies.

The Maws courtyard is used to host events including open air concerts, World Heritage Site events, outdoor art exhibitions and seasonal fairs.    

The centre courtyard is open to walk through 7 days a week but individual shop & studio opening times vary. Usually a selection of them can be found open most days.  If you want to see a particular studio, shop or artist please check with them before travelling any distance. Contact details can be found on the arts & crafts page of this website.  Details for other businesses are on the non arts & crafts page. The Tile Press Cafe is here: Tile Press

We offer the added bonus of no admission fee and free parking to make your visit with us more enjoyable. National cycle route 45  and walking footpath Severn Valley Way are both nearby. So please come and visit the shops, galleries, studios and café, enjoy walking round our peacefully attractive courtyard, or simply sit, relax and enjoy the atmospheric surroundings
