Other Events

Local events

In the summer months small groups of members demonstrate their skills at some of the agricultural shows and craft fairs. Members also take part in local craft events at other times of year.

Summer Shows

Guild members are generally involved in demonstrating at local summer shows.

There are a number of national events which may be of interest to Guild members, which we will try to list here. If you know of any Events that would interest our members please do let us know and we’ll add to our calendar.
