Almost Show Time!

If you’re anywhere near Bristol or the south west of England within the next couple of months, it would be worth keeping an eye out for three furniture exhibitions. Two of these shows follow on from similar events that took place a year earlier. Sadly, due to financial reasons, I’m unable to take part this year. But, if these show are anything like what was witnessed last year then, you won’t want to miss them, if you have the opportunity to pay them a visit!

Of course, there is also one annual show for this region that I haven’t mentioned above and that’s the acclaimed Celebration of Craftsmanship & Design in Cheltenham. But, that’s not until the end of August.

‘Inspired’ Exhibition Update!

With just two-days left to run on this one, I thought it was about time I got around to providing you with a bit of an update and a few photos of what you’re missing out on if you haven’t been already.

‘Inspired’ Begins!

Just a brief note, this one, to say that the ‘Inspired‘ exhibition at the Ashton Court Estate (Bristol) opens this morning. Hours are 10.00-16.30 daily, with the show closing next Sunday afternoon (25th).

All are welcome and, if you’re in the area at all over the next eight-days, it’s definitely worth a look. Not only for that, but also, the grounds and mansion itself are worth a look, if you haven’t visited before.

Just follow the signs in to the Visitor Centre and the exhibition space is upstairs in the Hayloft Gallery. Along with all the fine furniture, there is some art and carved/sculpture work.

Unfortunately, I don’t have any photographs for you at the minute as the layout was still being organised when I dropped my two pieces off yesterday morning. I should be there Thursday and Friday though and I’ll update this thread/add a new post as necessary.

(I’m quietly confident that I may find a buyer for my arm chair and side table… Watch this space! ;-))
