Parham House Contemporary Craft Show

June 2018

Saturday 16th & Sunday 17th

The Sussex Guild is delighted to be exhibiting at Parham again. The Guild is a group of professional designer-makers selected for their high degree of skill and creativity. Members live and work in Sussex and the adjoining counties. Formed nearly fifty years ago, the group supports its members in a variety of ways whilst promoting public understanding and appreciation of fine craft and design.

Parham House & Gardens is nestled beneath the South Downs in the heart of an ancient deer park. Its tranquillity and timeless beauty have changed little over the centuries.

The Guild’s Craft Show takes place in a large marquee within the famous award-winning gardens with spectacular examples of ceramics, leather, textiles, jewellery, wood, glass, metalwork and fine modern furniture on show and craft demonstrations too.

Visitors will be able to meet the designer-makers, watch them at work, and view, buy or commission an individual piece.

For an additional £2 visitors can explore the Elizabethan House, complete with its Great Hall and Long Gallery. Together with paintings and antique furniture, Parham’s internationally acclaimed collection of needlework will be displayed, possibly the finest and most important collection of sixteenth and seventeenth-century embroidery in the United Kingdom. Please note that from 13 to 24 June there is a special needlework display event with an exhibition of items that are not normally on display.

Light lunches, cream teas and refreshments are available in the Tudor ‘Big Kitchen’ or ‘The Mower Shed’ garden tearoom.
