Arts & Crafts

Explore a wide variety of beautiful local craftwork made by talented resident creatives on the island.

Barbados stands out as an exquisite destination with a rich and vibrant Afro-Caribbean culture that is reflected in its art. So, you can find beading, watercolors, basketry, mahogany carvings, shell work, jewellery, fine wood, metal sculptures and pottery work representing our Afro-Caribbean heritage. Dotted across the island, you can find craftspeople showcasing their work created out of the island’s readily available natural resources, such as clay, wood, pandanus grass, palm leaves, bamboo, shells and leather. Local craftspeople also showcase during the island’s celebratory cultural festivals and markets, such as the Holetown Festival in February, the Oistins Festival in Easter/early April, Bridgetown Market during Crop Over in July and the Barbados Museum’s Christmas Fair in December.
