Changes at Stackwood

We're making some changes at Stackwood to better support our vibrant community of makers.

Stackwood Cafe has now closed. We’ve loved seeing your friendly faces every day and this decision comes with a heavy heart.

Workshops will continue to be held at Stackwood, and from July 1st they will be run independently by the makers. If you’ve already booked a workshop, rest assured your ticket is still valid and the workshop is still happening!

Stay connected with us via Instagram and check back soon for more updates.

What's happening?

What changes are occurring?

The most notable change will be the cafe closing from Sunday 16 June, with the business itself ceasing to trade as of June 30th. The studios will remain as the heart of Stackwood, providing spaces for local talent to work and create. You’ll be able to keep up to date with what’s happening in the space through our social media and website.

I’ve booked a workshop - what happens to my ticket?

If you’ve already booked a workshop, your ticket is still valid. Stackwood has committed to transferring all ticket funds to the workshop facilitators so their workshops can continue. 

From July 1st, you’ll be able to book a workshop directly through the makers themselves. We’ll have links and updates on our website.

Why is the cafe closing?

With our focus on supporting makers, it is sadly no longer sustainable for us to continue operating the cafe. We’ve loved seeing and serving you, and this is not a decision we’ve made lightly.

What will happen to the space?

Stackwood will continue as a vibrant creative hub for makers and a place for the community to learn, craft and connect. The cafe space will be made available as an opportunity for an independent operator. For any enquiries, contact us at

Can I still visit?

Stackwood will be open to workshop participants and for special events such as maker’s markets and open studios. Outside of promoted times, our studios are also open by appointment. Please be sure to contact them ahead of your planned visit.

Will there still be pop-ups and maker’s markets at Stackwood?

Studio Open Days and Makers’ Markets will continue, and from 1 July they will be run independently by makers. Keep up to date with what’s happening in the space through our social media and website.

I have a gift voucher - can I still use it?

The cafe and workshops business will cease trading from June 30th 2024. From July 1st all vouchers will no longer be valid.
