Elements: REFINED - Surrey Guild of Craftsmen


A selling exhibition to celebrate 21 years of the Surrey Guild Craft Gallery in Milford. The touring exhibition brings together the diverse work of 40 members of the Guild. Each maker was invited to produce up to three exceptional pieces to showcase their skills in materials such as woodwork, ceramics, textiles, jewellery and metalwork.

Lois Bellew, Chairman of the Surrey Guild of Craftsmen (2014) notes that the co-operative was set up some 35 years ago 'as part of a project run by Surrey University to give craft workers and their skills a higher profile', and this imperative is behind the celebratory purpose of the touring exhibition.
