Oil & Oak


Oil & Oak is a community Gift Shop & Gallery, supporting local independent makers, creators and artists. Located in the beautiful Hay-on-Wye, in the Welsh Borderlands, we are proudly unique, artisan and independent.

Showcasing over 40 local creatives and their handmade sustainable gifts, we want to support as many artists and makers as we can. Oil & Oak is a curated space for contemporary craft and design from Wales and beyond. We stock a range of Jewelery, Homewares, Clothing, Greetings Cards, Wrapping Paper, Vegan Gifts, Original Artwork, Prints, Beauty Products, Dried Flowers, Sustainable Products, Ceramics and Sculptures.

We also have a Gallery and Workshop space upstairs, hosting artists and makers wanting to share their skills with you. As well as it being a safe space for Hay-on-Wye’s smaller residents to enjoy Art Club.

Oil & Oak was founded by Abi; having spent years working as a curator and artist in Bristol, in 2020 she decided Hay-on-Wye was to be her forever home and in 2021 she opened Oil & Oak with the amazing support of her husband Paul and their new arrival Lilly.
