Gorgeous things for gorgeous people…

The long-running Gorgeous contemporary designer craft fair returns to Enginuity in Coalbrookdale on the weekend of 18 and 19 November. Organised by the Shropshire Guild of Contemporary Craft and featuring guest craftspeople and artisans from across the West Midlands, Gorgeous is a celebration of creative skills, promoting the work of the region’s artists and designers, many of whom enjoy international recognition… and it’s the perfect opportunity to find unique gifts.

Exquisite and unusual jewellery, glassware, ceramics, textiles, fine furniture, prints and metalwork will be on show, and many of the designer/makers will be demonstrating their craft, giving an insight into their work.

This year top exhibitors include furniture maker Robert Shelton who combines traditional design with a contemporary twist to create furniture of character using locally sourced wood. Jeweller Sarah Piper Heap works in silver and other natural materials to create jewellery and tableware from her studio in the borderland of Shropshire and North Wales. Ceramicist and sculptor Caroline Bennett creates unique figurative and free-flowing sculptures using a range of techniques, from coil and slab building to throwing and slip casting.

Gorgeous is open 10am to 5pm on Saturday and 10am to 4pm on Sunday and admittance is free. To find out more go to shropshireguild.co.uk.
