Events in Shropshire
Designer makers from The Shropshire Guild of Contemporary Craft and guests will be holding their annual ‘Gorgeous’ selling exhibition in October at Enginuity, Ironbridge.
The Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust and The Shropshire Guild have come together once again to organise this wonderful event to be held over a weekend in October.
This event offers visitors the opportunity to meet and buy items hand crafted by an exceptionally talented group of people mostly living and working within the county.
Gorgeous will also feature a food hall filled with local companies offering delicacies from the region including locally produced chocolates, cakes, wine, preserves, fresh local vegetables, cheeses and meat.
Companies in the food hall include Riverford Organic vegetables, The Whiskey Tasting Company and preserve and chutney makers, Heathers Harvest.
Chairwoman of the Guild Sophie Eades said “visitors to Gorgeous will be treated to a multi sensory experience - not only from when they first walk into the food hall to be greeted by delicious smells and tastes, but then to move onto the exhibiting designer makers and see the quality and diversity of work”.
Sophie continued “Shropshire has a wealth of innovative creative talent, and on show at Gorgeous will be over 35 creative and imaginative designer makers from the region".
From hand crafted designer furniture to inventive, creative ceramics, finely made jewellery in silver and gold featuring semi and precious stones and hand woven textiles – Gorgeous will be a proverbial feast for those who appreciate design led crafts.
