Stag & Bow
Expect a relaxed approach to craft and textiles at this cute craft store and workshop. Classes include crochet, needle felting, embroidery, fabric printing and button making among a raft of others. There's a hint of wit in some – such as Emergency Hat, which sees a milliner teach you how to make a hat in three hours – as well as history. Founders Pascale and Cyrus love local, as well as craft history and you may well find yourself learning how to make fabric buttons while listening to a talk about their provenence from an expert.

Lovely selection of hand-crafted gifts, many locally sourced, and craft supplies at the back. Owner is friendly and helpful and the workshops are a great addition to Forest Hill life.

It's such a creative and inspiring environment with really friendly and helpful owners. Whether you want to buy a book to help you make pom-poms or a macrame pot holder to taking one of their excellent creative craft classes. I think it's a winner all day long!

A lovely environment to be in. I could spend hours in there, there is so much to look at and be inspired by. The staff are friendly and very knowledgable and have saved my knitting on a few occasions!

For all things craft. Extremely knowledgeable, friendly staff. If they don't have the solution or can't do it they know someone local who will! A range of craft workshops for all levels and ages. Love this place!
