The ArtCafe is a cafe and art gallery with one b&b bedroom, on the road to Two Foot Bay, where you can relax over refreshments or buy crafts and souvenirs including Claire Frank's silk paintings and hand painted T-shirts. Claire has many Caribbean guide books that can be borrowed and a large archive of fascinating information about Barbuda that she has collected over 25 years. You can also buy maps, postcards and other local gifts.

We have one bedroom available to book through this website directly or through airbnb. Please look at our listing on airbnb for full details of the acommodation and our prices, and then send us a message above or book through them.
Silk painting is a technique similar to batik; hot wax is used to draw a picture and gold gutta adds to the final decoration. The picture is cut out and then mounted on a quality card, or matte board or framed by a local frame maker who creates beautiful hand-made frames to suit each individual picture.
Claire has been published with various articles about Barbuda and by Penguin in an anthology called 'The Map of Me - True Tales of Mixed Heritage experience'. Claire has also contributed information about Barbuda to several guide books on the Caribbean region, in particular the Footprint, Rough Guide, Dorling Kindersley and Lonely Planet guides. She writes this website and writes for other sites who use the information as an international resource about Barbuda, and we often host visiting travel writers and photographers.
We have a small and very successful volunteering programme through Wwoof Caribbean for people looking to visit Barbuda and work here with us on short-term projects.
