The Centrepiece Christmas Decoration

This year Centrepiece decided to celebrate our Christmas exhibition by getting everyone to make a Christmas decoration in their own special style. I’m really excited to see what so many talented makers have come up with – it’s going to be a really diverse bunch!

I’m off to Ironbridge this weekend for Gorgeous, the Shropshire Guild of Contemporary Craft’s aptly named Autumn Fair. It showcases some of the best local craft (including the wonderful Emily Richard on the flyer) alongside some pretty scrumptious local food producers too.

I’ll be doing a little talk about etching on silver and they’ll be demonstrations and presentations from other makers through the day too.
