Supporting Contemporary Craftspeople
Supporting Contemporary Craftspeople is an integral part of the craft gallery at the Burton at Bideford. The Burton promotes and supports over 40 contemporary craftspeople from around the UK. Precious and non-precious jewellery sit alongside ceramics, prints, textiles and metalwork.
Our craft gallery is the perfect place to see and purchase the very best of contemporary craft, with unique pieces of work you will never find anywhere else. Come browse in-person to see the quality and individuality of these pieces. Also, visit our online shop to see the range of crafts on we have on offer to buy.
Makers include Svend Bayer, Clive Bowen, Anne Farag, Sarah Young, Amanda Anderson, Bill and Peach Shaw and Hilary Paynter. Craft showcase exhibitions are programmed to run throughout the year and they give the Burton at Bideford a chance to introduce our visitors to emerging artists and new makers.
Every few months, we choose a particular artist and their craft work and highlight it in its own ‘showcase’, which means further in-shop promotion, articles on the website and a dedicated area in the craft gallery.
