2017 was the first year that The Byre Gallery was a sponsor of the Contemporary Craft Festival at Bovey Tracey - one of the country's best contemporary craft events and a must-visit destination for me every year.
Spring 2016 exhibition, 'Pastures New,' featured ceramic bodices by Ellen Woods, and glass from Ruth Shelley among other contemporary craft delights.
More maker success. I'm so pleased to share that Ruth Shelley - whose wonderful glass work can be seen at The Byre - has had three pieces selected for the highly prestigious British Glass Biennale which opens in Stourbridge at the end of this month. Ruth is one of just 76 finalists for this internationally acclaimed event. I'm rather proud that one of her pieces to be selected is Stormy Seas which was exhibited at The Byre last year. If you are in the Midlands between the 28 May and the end of June, do try to get along, it promises to be a stunning event.
