ANB @ Pop Up Dunstable

After weeks of hard work our beautiful Pop Up Shop (ANB @ Pop Up Dunstable, 3 Ashton Square, Dunstable, Bedfordshire, LU6 3SN) is up and running. I am so delighted with how wonderful it looks and love all the different handmade gifts and original art we have in stock.

It is amazing to have such a lovely showcase for some of the many talented local Bedfordshire artists and inspiring to watch visitors discovering their own favourites within the store. The feedback from these customers and the stories they are telling us about their own work and love of art is a huge reward in itself. Making sales in such a hard economic climate, and the many promises to return (when they have more time or money) and to bring their friends, are very exciting.

Today is Market Day and we have free parking in Dunstable so it looks like it will be a busy day. Plus we will be running our Leaf Collage Workshop (just £1  go) so we are looking forward to welcoming lots of new customers.

Lu Underwood

The Craft Collective is a group of Hertfordshire based textile, mixed media and stitch artists.


As individuals we use natural silks,organic textiles and wool, and repurpose fabrics.  Our processes range from hand dying wool fibres and fabrics to making paper and from silk forms to furniture.




Hazel Stapleton

As a collective, stitch is a fundamental part of our work but with outcomes that are very different.

The Craft Collective workshops are a way of handing on and keeping alive the skills we have.
