Hantverk kring Kanalen in Hajstorps old warehouse


Hantverk kring Kanalen

Hantverk kring Kanalen is situated in a beautiful old warehouse, right next to the Hajstorp locks at Göta Canal. Every summer the warehouse is filled with arts and crafts that come directly from our workshops and studios.

We who run the business are five woman crafters who work, for example, with textiles, ceramics and wood. We share a love of crafts, sensuous materials, shapes and colours. Hajstorp is a destination for an excursion in a genuine canal environment and a solace for the soul.

In Hajstorp you can sit at the locks and watch the boats. Enjoy a cup of coffee or tea, an ice cream or a light lunch at the Slusscafé in a wonderful canal environment. Upstairs in the warehouse is the exhibition showing the life of a farming family one hundred years ago. Here the children may have a go att weaving, carving bark boats, etc. During the summer well-attended veteran vehicle meetings are arranged.

Public transportation


Hantverk kring Kanalen is an economic association run by five woman crafters. They each have their own studios, but in the summer they converge in a common exhibition here in Hajstorp. Every summer they also invite a few more crafters so as to have a broader selection, yet always with a focus on good quality.


Hajstorp is situated approx. 5 km north of Töreboda, right next to the Göta Canal.
