TEN out of TEN
Celebrating ten years of the Contemporary Craft Festival
Saturday 4 May - Sunday 16 June
As a Director of The Contemporary Craft Festival, a weekend event held in Bovey Tracey every June, the Devon Guild of Craftsmen is helping to celebrate the first ten years by staging an exhibition showcasing ten designer-makers.
TEN out of TEN shows the work of ten makers who have won awards,
selected by a prestigious panel during the opening of each Festival, ranging from best emerging maker to best stand. This exhibition intends to be a platform for each of these makers to launch a new product, bring a new idea to the market place or exhibit new work that they wouldn’t necessarily show in a craft show environment. Each exhibitor has become a leading maker in their field and the work exhibited will help us to understand why these makers are winners, what it takes to become successful and what is in store for their next ten years of making. The Contemporary Craft Festival is held over the weekend of 7 - 9 June.
Virginia Graham Ceramics, Andrew Potter Glass, Margo Selby Textiles, Cleo Mussi Mosaic, Lizzie Farey Willow, Helaina Sharpley Wire, Adele Brereton Jewellery, Anja Keeley Mixed Media, John Luff Furniture, Dionne Swift Textiles
FREE. Open daily. 10am-5.30pm. 01626 832223 email@example.com

Jane has a broad range of interest in creative experimentation with paper making, casting and with textile stitching, printing and its three dimensional manipulation. She sees her stitched textiles as sculpture; the layering creates depth through cutting into surfaces, playing with space, texture and form.
Jane’s Members showcase exhibition represents a 3 dimensional response to 30’s and 40’s architecture derived from a residency at High Cross House, Dartington. She uses supported or stiffened felted and stiched threads to create free standing and wall mounted geometric sculptures. Framed prints are also included.
Prices range from £99 to £240.
