Crafting a gorgeous Christmas

One of the region’s most popular Christmas craft events returns to its spectacular setting this festive season. Gorgeous brings together designers from all over the Midlands to celebrate the skills of contemporary craftspeople and artists, with this year’s event taking place on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 November.

Organised by the Shropshire Guild of Contemporary Craft, Gorgeous promotes the work of designers from the West Midlands, including many internationally recognised artists. The fair draws inspiration from the Gorge’s rich heritage of creativity, design and industry, and there’s a real sense of occasion as shoppers filter through the historic building, viewing the variety of art and crafts available to buy from the 40+ stalls.

Gorgeous showcases exquisite and unusual jewellery, glassware, ceramics, textiles, fine furniture, prints and metal work from highly skilled designer/makers, and visitors can choose Christmas presents for loved ones, or feature pieces for their own home. Many artists and craftspeople will also be giving workshops to allow visitors an insight into their work and an opportunity to ask questions.

Gorgeous is open from 10am until 4pm on both Saturday and Sunday; entry into the Engine Shop is free but normal admission charges apply for Enginuity. Food and drinks will also be available to purchase.For more details, visit
