At Devon Guild Of Craftsmen

The Summer Show

20 July – 8 September

Presenting the best new work from selected Members of Devon Guild of Craftsmen

The Summer Show is the longest running Devon Guild exhibition, launched in 1955 to celebrate the skills and original work from long-standing Guild Members through to the newest faces.

A key event in the Guild’s exhibition calendar, Members use the opportunity either to present a truly iconic piece of their work or to create something new and experimental. It's an opportunity for visitors to enjoy a wide variety of contemporary craft and for the Guild to showcase the outstanding talent of their membership. This eclectic exhibition covers a vast range of mediums, including ceramics, textiles and print.
