Designer Craftsmen exhibition

The Designer Craftsmen show is at the Mall Galleries every year, with lots of interesting work from a variety of makers - glass, furniture, textiles, ceramics, jewellery...

My notes consist of these names - Alex Archbold, Caroline Marriott, Helen Edwards, Judy Dibiasi, Denise Jones, Adam Macro, Sue Stone, Alison Dupernex, Debbie Lyddon, Carlyn Lindsay, Consuelo Simpson, Valerie Price-West, Claire Blackburn, Zoe Hillyard, Judith Hammond, Linda Sadler, Sonya Viney, Sumi Perera, Penny Seume - and I've now had a chance to look them up on the web to find some photos of their work - unfortunately some don't yet have their own websites.

Some of my favourites -
