A shop-curated reprise of the Devon Guild Members' work from this years' Contemporary Craft Festival. Too good not to show again!

BACKGOUND: The Contemporary Craft Festival, first held in 2004,celebrated its 15th Year in 2018. The event has grown from 4,000 to 10,000 visitors since it started and has become one of the most prestigious and much loved craft events in Europe. The Guild always has an on-site information and showcase tent at the Fair and this is an opportunity to take our special showcase - and Festival spirit - back to the gallery for a little longer.

The fair began when three Bovey Tracey craft businesses - Devon Guild of Craftsmen, House of Marbles and The Cardew Teapottery - joined forces and formed a non-profit making company with the aim of holding a large fair to showcase the very best in British craft, create a new,sustainable and strong marketplace and bring greater prosperity to the town.  Devon Guild continues to support and facilitate the Festival which has become the key event in the life of the town.

Members - Nick Agar; Blandine Anderson; Jude Freeman; Sarah Hemmings-Vourda, Jane Martin, Sam Pickard; Lizzie Sanders, Rosie Sanders; Rob Sollis; Vicky Whelpton,

Associate Members - Corrinne Eira Evans, Anna Gravelle, Jane Clift; Jinny Wessel
