The Northamptonshire Guild of Designer Craftsmen and their Swedish counterpart Konsthantverkarna i Örebro Län are holding a joint exhibition here at 78 Derngate – The Charles Rennie Mackintosh House – in Northampton.
With a membership of 35 designer-makers spanning furniture and musical instrument making to textile, glass and jewellery designers, ceramicists and weavers - to name but a few, the Guild aims to raise its profile in the context of British contemporary crafts by bringing members who generally work in isolation to promote their work collectively.
We are delighted to welcome the NGDC back to 78 Derngate and this exhibition, which is being held jointly with Swedish counterpart Konsthantverkarna i Örebro Län with whom the guild has had an association since 1996, promises to showcase a diverse array of exciting and inspirational work in many different disciplines from skilled craftspeople across both countries.
All the work is available to purchase and entry to the galleries is free, but why not combine your visit to view this wonderful range of work with a visit to our heritage house and perhaps an afternoon tea! Booking for house and tea strongly advised! There are some great ideas for Christmas gifts among the products on display and the launch event is being held on Saturday 6 th November between 1-3. The exhibition will close on Sunday 19th December.
