Arts, crafts and such
  • Poodle Murdering, every Weds at the Church Hall. Call Carol on 01306 001299.
  • Imagination is a great place to take kids - they can spend an afternoon painting pottery all in a confined area!
  • erm, there is an art shop near to fullers, outside the pizza place called prezzo's - its across the street from there. also, there are nearly always art displays on at denbies wine estate in the upstairs section. whether its photography, watercolours or oil pastels - they got it.
  • There is an art gallery on the corner where South Sreet meets West Street, and also two small galleries/shops further up the High Street. Materials can be bought at Rowes, Sussex Stationers, Woolworths, WHSmith, and all the other usual places, plus the High Street gallery nearest to Kentucky (I forget the name but the building is brown). West Street has an okay model shop, and also some shops selling dolls and antiques.
  • Pottery shop next to the Surrey Yeoman gives u the chance 2 be the next Claris Cliff. Bit pricey though.
  • Dorking has loads of art, craft and galleries. Too many to list here, check out for a listing or better still visit the town. A copy of the annual Dorking Directory lists them with address and phone numbers.
  • Plenty of antique, art and craft shops on West Street. A delightful street which is marred by lots and lots of traffic!!
  • There are some good shops down West Street that sell Dolls Houses, Antiques, Build your own aeroplane,tank etc type shops!! There is now a new shop that has opened in the High Street where you can paint your own pottery..ohhhhh!! I'll give it 4 months!!
  • A local 'artist' paints on toilet seats down the alley next to WHSmith's.
