My event season for 2022 starts at the end of June with an exhibition and sale of stained glass work at the beautiful Sir Harold Hiller Gardens, near Romsey in Hampshire. The event is on from Thursday 30 June to Wednesday 8 July. It is open from 10am until 5pm each day, except the final day when it closes at 3pm. The Gardens are open from 10am until 6pm each day.
I first exhibited here in the summer of 2021 with the Wessex Guild of Craftsmen. We had a successful show, despite COVID-19 restrictions meaning that visitors to the Gardens had to pre-book. This year, there is no pre-booking required!
A variety of unique, handmade stained glass artworks will be on display. Items range from jewellery, coasters and light catchers to bespoke panels and impressive wall art. It’s a great opportunity to see and choose something in person. Perhaps you will see something for yourself, or as a gift for a friend or relative.
Eight other members of the Wessex Guild will be showing a selection of high quality, handmade goods alongside my work. You will be able to browse textile art, including pictures, cushions and bags, turned wood pens, framed prints based on original designs, unique paintings from two different artists working in different contemporary styles, plus some large ceramic pieces.
A few of the exhibitors will be on hand each day to chat to you about their work and techniques. A second batch of Wessex Guild craftspeople will be showing their work from 9-13 July.
Sir Harold Hiller Gardens is an extensive area of relaxing gardens and an established arboretum. It covers 180 acres and is perfect for a wander with the family – before or after you visit the Wessex Guild exhibition of course! The event is in the membership building on the left, just inside the entrance where you buy your entry tickets. Food and drinks are available to buy too.
Memberships to the Gardens are available, or you can pay on the day. Once you have paid your admission, there is no charge to view the exhibition.
