Art and Craft in Barbados
The island’s ‘gentler side’ offers a cultural haven among the action-packed
activities on offer. Art in Barbados has evolved greatly over the past decade
and there is also a wide variety of beautiful local craftwork, much of it created
out of the island’s most readily available natural resources such as clay,
mahogany, pandanus grass, coconut, palm fronds, bamboo, shells and leather.
On your travels around the island be sure to visit some of our art galleries
and our talented local artists and crafts people. Perhaps you’ll find a unique
treasure as a reminder of your visit to our ‘island in the sun’.
