SUSSEX GUILD: At Michelham Priory until Sunday Sussex Guild members and invited guest exhibitors show a variety of unique crafts: including: ceramics, jewellery, furniture, glass, metalwork, textiles and wood. However, it is the craft demonstrations that make this craft show really special. Demonstrations will include: creative textiles, glass working, patchwork, quilting, smocking and woodturning, together with several potters showing their different skills. There will be two potters demonstrating on the potter’s wheel, a ceramicist decorating her pots and, for the first time this year, a raku kiln firing. Admission to the house and gardens includes the contemporary craft show which is sited in the Elizabethan barn and in small marquees on the lawns.
