Nestled in Somerset - England - at the center of the Levels lies Langport along the river Parett. Half way up the High Street you will find us,Goodswen and Belle.
We began as a small felting studio working from a village a few miles away, then after a few years we took the jump to open our own studio, gallery & shop.
Our wish is to provide an outlet for local artist and creative people which is why we have an eclectic selection from soft furnishings to childrens' books as well as having the open felting studio where I work so customers can see the process. ask questions and maybe even be inspired to have a go at a workshop either in the shop or online.
Currently we are a jolly group:
Rob is the potter and comes from High Ham, Caroline upholsters furniture and lives in Paradise(yes really), Misha the jewellery queen lives in North Curry, Rachel with her candles hails from Minehead, David publishes his books from Wearne, Jackie paints her beutful work in Glastonbury and Ray and I live behind the shop!
The Goodswen and Belle team has now grown and we pride ourselves more than ever in supporting local farmers and working with local printers.
We have a No Plastics packaging policy where possible and are striving to make this absolute.
