Maws Craft Centre

Jackfield is now a sleepy hamlet, but was once a sooty, grimy place that hummed to the tune of two large tile factories, Maws and Craven Dunmill. Both were built in the middle of the 19th century to the latest industrial design, a fully integrated manufacturing system that produced thousands of tiles at breakneck speed.
Ahead of their time, the two factories boomed from the time of their construction until the 1920's, and have both survived in good condition.
The Maws factory has been sympathetically converted into Maws Craft Centre, which contains over 20 individual workshops housing a wide variety of Art, Craft & Design businesses.
