The Celebration of Craftsmanship & Design in Cheltenham has become the largest selling exhibition of high quality bespoke furniture in the country and every year it draws visitors and exhibitors from around the world.
Established in 1994 by Betty Norbury the show has evolved and grown significantly and now displays the work of around 70 designer-makers. The emphasis is on furniture, but each year this is complemented by work from several other disciplines such as jewellery, art and glass.
Award winning furniture designer/maker Jason Heap took over the organisation and curation of the show in 2009 and he is now looking to develop and enhance the exhibition to continue its success. As part of this he has launched several awards to generate awareness of the craft and reward those that continue to push the boundaries of innovation, skill and perfection.
I am delighted to have been accepted for the show this year, and excited to be exhibiting amongst some of the best furniture makers this country has to offer.
