On Saturday, September 23, there will be an opportunity to Meet the Makers and take part in family craft activities between 10am and 3pm.

Jewellery maker and guild member Kate Wilkinson said: “We’re delighted that Discover Bucks Museum has given the guild this wonderful opportunity to showcase all of our different types of work.

"We look forward to welcoming people from all over the county and further afield to view, inspire and purchase from the exhibition, and we can’t wait to meet families at our Meet the Makers day on September 23.”

In addition to the showcase exhibition at The Discover Bucks Museum, The Bucks Craft Guild has a permanent presence at its new Stoke Mandeville gallery at Layby Farm, on the site of the Bucks Goat Centre, with opportunities to meet the makers, see demonstrations and learn about the processes involved. Commissions are welcome and the online shop has a selection of work by various artists.
