Summer Show 2015 in Chipping Campden

Summer Show 2015 in Chipping Campden

The Gloucestershire Guild of Craftsmen’s  Summer Show held in Chipping Campden’s historic Town Hall from 15 to 23 August 2015, confirming the town’s long-standing links with craft and design.

The wonderful work of over 20 guild members  made a visit to this show memorable and worthwhile. Each day there were 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.
