Chilterns Craft & Design Show – 22 to 25 August 2014

Stonor Park 1 The Academy exhibited at the Chilterns Craft & Design Show  for the first time on 22 to 25 August 2014.  The show is held at Stonor Park, one of England’s oldest manor houses, situated in a stunning setting and owned by the same family for 850 years.  Quite apart from the interest of the craft show, the house contains a remarkable collection of family portraits, beautiful stained glass, old Master Drawings, European Bronzes, early 19th century wallpaper of Paris and a fine display of Japanese contemporary ceramics complementing other ceramics from England, Korea, and Denmark.

We exhibited a traditional clinker boat, built as part of the 38 week boat building course. It was an enjoyable event.
