Its exterior still resembles a place of worship, but behind the doors of Harbour Drive’s landmark lies a celebration of Welsh craft and culture…
Once a popular meeting place for seafarers during the Second World War, Cardiff’s Norwegian Church is now a centre for Welsh culture. From art installations to craft fairs to music concerts and theatre events, the landmark exhibits the best Welsh Art to offer, as well as offering stunning views of Cardiff Bay.
Last weekend, the Gallery Gift Shop was held at the Church, showcasing products from an array of local artisan crafters. As I walked around, I was surprised at the range of products on display such as candles, jewellery, handcrafted wooden crockery, and even lipsticks.
The Gallery Gift Shop will be hosting a special Christmas event on December 11th involving 25 crafters, mulled wine, a choir and even a Santa’s Grotto – a great opportunity for those eager to feel some festive cheer.
The church’s Gallery Gift Shop provides an alternative shopping experience far from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, and once you’ve finished your gift-buying, you can relax on the terrace and drink in the stunning views from Harbour Drive (as well as a lovely mocha from the church café!).
