Exhibitions

The group holds several exhibitions and sales a year. The Spring exhibition this year is at The Shipwreck at Shotley Marina. Previous events have been held regularly at the Ipswich High School in Woolverstone and last Autumn at the Holbrook Academy. These are regular events and over the years have attracted a dedicated and growing number of customers from far and wide.

Many customers not only buy items from the events, but also commission the members to provide them with individually designed items. A testimony not only to the variety but the high standards achieved within the group.

The items available vary widely not only in the variety of disciplines, but in price with pieces ranging from a few pounds to many hundreds – so there is something for everyone!

One of the exhibtions is a 'working exhibition', where the public can meet the crafters. This year, it is the Spring exhibition...

On the first floor of the Shipwreck, at Shotley Marina, Shotley Gate.

We will have a wider range of items for sale at this exhibition as we have expanded our membership greatly and of course we will have various guest exhibitors.

Crafts being demonstrated will include a wide range from the following...

Items for house and home - fabric, wood, wool, ceramic
Furniture for home and garden in oak and other local woods 
Bowls and platters - wooden, fabric, ceramic
Clocks and goblets - ceramic and wood 
Pepper Mills in wood and with silver embellishment
Quilts - single, double, queen and king sized

Accessories - scarves, wrist-warmers, slippers, bags in fabric and wools
Jewelery - Silver, beading, needle-weaving, chain-mail, wood and ceramic

There is plenty of help at hand, and if you do not see what you want please do ASK - we will have many things held in reserve as we can not have everything on display!

This year we have new members bringing new crafts and skills, to add depth and breadth to what we will have on display - new ceramics, jewellery, felted goods, hand-made chairs and stools, oak outdoor furniture, new pen and ink cards, graphic art, and textile art and quilts ... plus lots more 

Plus of course the Guest Exhibitors, who will include, we hope, our very popular regulars as well as a selection of new crafters.

We look forward to seeing you there!
