Devon Guild transforms gallery into Open Studios

Devon Guild transforms gallery into Open Studios

A premier craft centre transforms its gallery into working studios this September.

7 -29 September 2019

The Guild craft gallery in Bovey Tracey is to be a new venue for the annual Devon Open Studios this year. Six Guild Members will showcase their work and be present at the centre, demonstrating their craft, chatting and letting visitors have a go – all in the UK tradition of local artists opening their doors to the public (Devon: September 7-22).

For locals and visitors it’s a unique opportunity to hunt out artists in beautiful, unexplored Devon as well as buy art direct from the creator, chat or try a technique themselves.

They can find all this at the Guild's Riverside gallery which will be transformed into makers’ studios. Here you can meet weaver Jane Deane and have a go at spinning, chat to printmaker Hugh Dunford Wood - known for his stunning wallpaper, meet Kate Toms (and try needle-felting) also Luna North who demos printmaking methods. Sarah Vigars introduces handcarved statement jewellery – and Caroline Hall will teach different textile techniques. (All in the Riverside Gallery at Devon Guild.)

The Guild is pleased to create this working space for its Members who will be part of a busy craft hub with free demos, meet the maker and taster sessions. These live, hands-on activities aim to introduce people to the sometimes hidden skills of our local makers.
