Step into a world of festive delights and choose the perfect present for that special someone at our ever popular Christmas selling exhibition.
This year Christmas Delights will run from 17 November to Sunday 6 January, 2019 when we will be exhibiting hand-made items created by local designer-crafters, including a number of bespoke items made exclusively for the exhibition.
There is something for everyone and to suit all pockets.
From Roger Barber’s wood turned items, using a wide variety of different woods to Nicola Durrant’s quirky, mixed media, hand finished prints and Virginia Graham’s ceramics, which are an eclectic amalgamation of nostalgic form and imagery.
Mary Day, a perennial favourite in the Museum shop, will also be showcasing her ever popular, silk painted items.
We will also be showcasing Tom Kowle’s range of stoneware, functional cook and serve ware which use glazes derived from iron, copper and wood ash and don’t miss Jane Moore’s jewellery, inspired by the tiny motifs and patterns found in Japanese artefacts and textiles.
Jill Pargeter’s singular textile items are inspired by folk art and the Arts and Crafts movement. The contemporary, silver jewellery hand crafted by Jane Phillips make perfect Christmas gifts, while Jonquil Sabin’s culinary wooden board designs are unique and often quirky, but always useful.
Employing a blended, red Staffordshire clay, Liz Teall makes a wide range of tableware that are a pleasure to use and display and as well as stand alone pieces, David Turner constructs a variety of outdoor and indoor metalworks, from gates to candleholders.
Many of Ros Watts beaded jewellery pieces incorporate semi-precious gemstones, individually created polymer clay beads, seed beads, kumihimo and shibori silk – a joy to both receive and give as presents.
So come along and soak up the magic of the festive season
and treat yourself to something special from our
sparkling array of Christmas delights!
