About Travelling Crow
The Travelling Crow is not a bricks and mortar gallery - but neither do we exist solely on the internet. You can see us at art, craft, and specialist events around the UK, where we will be delighted to share our latest finds with you.
We believe the best way to appreciate beautiful, handmade things is to hold them in your hand and learn about the maker and the processes they use. We love to chat about all aspects of making - so please feel free to ask us any questions!
Why ‘The Travelling crow’?
The crow is known to be a highly intelligent bird of the family Corvidae, which includes crows, ravens, rooks, jackdaws, jays, magpies, treepies, choughs, and nutcrackers.
Many species of corvid will bring small treasures to humans that they like.
In the same way, we travel the British Isles to bring back our contemporary art and craft finds to share with you, our lovely customers!
