Loaf Pottery & Coffee Shop

Updated: Nov 4, 2018

We’re very excited that our latest venture – Loaf Pottery arts centre and cafe is opening in Crawfordsburn in May! The centre will hold art classes, offer space to community groups and serve delicious Loaf treats in the cafe.

The pottery will see artists work alongside people with disabilities to develop skills that will increase their employability; local artists will also be able to use the space to promote their products and support economic development in the costal area.

Loaf Pottery is located on Main Street in Crawfordsburn on the site of the former Pinewood Pottery. We secured funding from the Coastal Communities Fund, Ards and North Down Borough Council, Ulster Garden Villages and George Best Belfast City Airport to renovate the space after being contacted by local residents who were keen to see the pottery restored and open to the community again.

In its opening weeks Loaf Pottery will be hosting private art classes and the cafe will open to the public on Monday 21st May. Check back for further information and opening times or get in touch with us on 02890 436400 and
