Chipping Campden Summer Show 2016

Monday 15 – Wednesday 24 August 2016

The Gloucestershire Guild of Craftsmen’s Summer Show 2016 is again held in Chipping Campden’s historic Town Hall confirming the town’s long-standing links with craft and design. It was opened by authors Peter and Charlotte Fiell and our news item contains Peter’s inspiring message to makers on craftsmanship.

As always, the wonderful work of over 20 guild members are for sale or commission. Each day there will be craft skills demonstrations by members.

Chipping Campden was one of the centres of the Arts and Crafts Movement in the early 20th century with the arrival in 1902 of the craft workshops of C R Ashbee and the Guild of Handicraft from London’s East End. Some of Ashbee’s Guildsmen, including the silversmiths, George Hart and Sidney Reeve, were early members of the Gloucestershire Guild together with potter Michael Cardew and stained glass artist, Paul Woodroffe.
