MAKE Southwest (formerly Devon Guild of Craftsmen) is an acclaimed exhibition space for contemporary craft and design as well as a leading charity for craft education.

Located in the heart of Bovey Tracey, on the edge of Dartmoor, in a gorgeous old mill, our large galleries, workshop space and shop, offer a great venue with inspiring exhibitions and events encouraging people to buy, make and learn about contemporary craft.

Apart from a handful of items, we only sell the work of our membership (over 250 makers from across the Southwest), while the exhibitions aim to show a broad range of the best craft from around the country.

MAKE Southwest is a registered charity with educational aims. Profits from our trading ventures help to subsidise this work, which includes the exhibition programme, projects in schools and community groups, lectures, and training.
