Address: Ratan, 91597 Bygdeå
In the “culture village” of Ratan, 40 km north of Umeå, there are handicrafts stalls picturesquely housed in the old harbour shop on the quay. Visitors can see and buy local handicrafts while looking out over the sea and the island of Rataskär.
Hantverk i Ratan was founded in 2004 by three local craftspeople. Every year since then, the number of exhibitors and offerings in the various handicrafts has grown. In summer 2016, 10 craftspeople with links to Västerbotten are exhibiting their goods like wirework, handmade soap, glassware, herb-infused salts, pottery, knitting, jewellery, woodwork, etc.
