Next Week We’re Heading to Malvern

Hi there!

We are not panicking!

Though we are busy, busy, busy with final preparations before heading off to the Malvern Autumn Show; 'set-up' is just a few short days away.

What's in our Show?
27 of our members, plus visiting guests, with fine jewellery, ceramics, metalwork,  sculpture, glass, textiles, basketware, fine furniture & bookbinding. Check us out WGCC at Malvern Autumn 2021

If you're a regular, you'll know where to find us; as always, in The Wye Hall with our friends from Herefordshire and Cotswold Craft Guilds. And you are assured of seeing some of the most talented & respected designer makers in the three counties & beyond - come and see what's new?

If you've not been before then you are in for a treat, there is so much to see.
And much as I hate to wish away time when we've lost so much over the last 18 months, you will certainly find lots of tempting ideas for the perfect, unique & locally handmade gifts for Chrrrrrr...... well you know when I mean?

The venue is the Three Counties Showground on the edge of Malvern and you can find the visitor guide here.
And don't forget the show is on for 3 days this year; Friday to Sunday 24th to 26th September. Entry is by ticket - get them here.

See you there!

 

Guild Shows 2021 – save the dates

Hi there!

Great news; it's been a long time coming but at last it's looking good for two of our Guild shows in the second half of 2021

Malvern Autumn

First off the blocks is the Malvern Autumn Show. We will be in the Guild of Crafts area and you can expect a pretty full house as we are all very eager to get back towards normal; even if that is slightly different these days.

 

It's a three day show this year, Friday September 24th through to Sunday 26th, so make a note not to miss it!
Find your favourite designer craftsmen & women and you'll be surprised to discover what they've been making while we were all locked-down. We'll keep you posted as our plans take shape.

Our second show will be our Christmas event in November.

Worcestershire Guild Craft Works

CraftWorks at the Royal Porcelain Works in the heart of Worcester, will run for just three days, Friday to Sunday November 5th to 7th.

Mark your calender now so that you can grab that perfectly unique, handmade, locally made, Christmas Gift.

And don't forget that you can shop online with WGCC anytime from the comfort of your sun lounger - just use the Shop online tab in our menu.
And catch up with hot news on facebook @WorcestershireGuild

Happy Summer, enjoy.
