This was held at Wallsworth Hall,  (put in picture) a stately house, which is now ‘The Nature in Art Museum and Art Gallery and situated just outside Gloucester city, in Gloucestershire, England.

The exhibition was a tremendous success, and such a lot of people came back time and time again  to see the exhibits, having not been able to ‘take it all in’ just seeing it for the first time.

We had 165 comments in the Goldwork Guild Visitors book. Here are just four comments :- “Absolutely  fabulous work”, “Magnificent precision and attention to detail”, “ I am bowled over by the amazing work. Mind blowing”, “Incredible skill. Wonderful work and so inspirational”.

Members were stewarding and demonstrating daily throughout the exhibition.

This was so appreciated by the public who were able to ask our stewards questions and liked having the work and materials explained to them as well as seeing the piece each member was working on.

This will take place at Whitminster Village Hall, (opposite Highfields Garden Centre) on the A38, south of Gloucester, Gloucesstershire from 10am – 4pm. Refreshments available all day and please bring a packed lunch or you can go for a snack in Highfields Garden Centre café, which is across the road from Whitminster village Hall.
