Michelham Priory & Gardens Contemporary Craft Show

Friday 29th to Sunday 31st July

Michelham Priory & Gardens Contemporary Craft Show

This summer the Guild returns to Michelham Priory, a Grade I listed Tudor house, surrounded by England’s largest water filled medieval moat, with a working watermill, and replica Bronze Age roundhouses.

Combine a visit to the past with talking to the Guild’s contemporary craft makers, from whom you may buy directly or commission bespoke items.

A wide range of contemporary crafts will be displayed in marquees on the lawns as well as in the Elizabethan barn.  You’ll find ceramics, textiles, jewellery, leatherwork, stone carving, pewter, wood, glass, furniture and printmaking.

Some designers will be demonstrating their skills, so you’ll see jewellery making, woodturning, embroidery and quilting, together with several potters showing different techniques.

Extensive grounds and gardens to explore, free parking, a licensed café, areas for children’s play and picnics, make an ideal day out.

“The Sussex Guild’s exhibition at Michelham Priory is one of the highlights of my craft visiting year. It is wonderful to see so much beautiful and creative talent in the perfect setting of Michelham Priory”.
