Now in its 6th year, our Contemporary Craft Show at the Pavilion will have fifty exhibitors showing the full diversity of our work, including several new and recent members of the Guild. Visitors can meet the designers of well designed, beautifully handmade crafts produced in small workshops and studios in East and West Sussex and the adjacent counties. Guild members are always pleased to discuss their work or to explain any specialist techniques they use. Work can be purchased on the day or specially commissioned for a more personal touch.
The De La Warr Pavilion provides the perfect setting to showcase the creativity and craft skills of the Guild. Built in 1935 in the new style of architecture named Modernism and restored in 2005 it now presents a rolling programme of art exhibitions and concerts as well as having a well curated shop and a spacious café overlooking the beach.
The bright and stylish Café Bar and Kitchen use fresh, seasonal ingredients, locally-sourced where possible, for delicious lunches, sandwiches, and cakes. There is a great range of wines, boutique beers, soft drinks, speciality teas and coffees. Weather permitting, food and drink can be enjoyed on the balconies whilst overlooking the sea.
With its wide beach and seafront promenade dotted with play sculptures and water features. Bexhill is a great place to relax and unwind. The historic Colannade lies just below the Pavilion, while just across the road is the town of Bexhill with its many teashops and independent businesses.
