New crafting destination to open in Ilkley

Mrs Duttons Wondrous Workshops on Church Street

Mrs Duttons Wondrous Workshops, the all-new destination for needle and textile crafting in the centre of Ilkley, opens its doors on Thursday 22 July 2021.

Duttons for Buttons has turned its former haberdashery shop at 3 Church Street into a vibrant space for beginners and experienced crafters to make and meet. It reflects their belief that communal crafting will help us all move on from the impact of Covid-19 and help place well-being at the top of the Ilkley community agenda.

Workshops are booking now online at
