Advance tickets: £6.50 / On the door: £8.00
Take an unforgettable day out to see thousands of beautiful exhibits, watch demonstrations, take part in make-and-take sessions and buy your parchment craft supplies. Information and advice available from parchment craft tutors from home and abroad and representatives of both the Parchment Craft Guild and Association of Parchment Crafters are available to answer questions and take new membership subscriptions. Workshops run by experts in parchment craft are held on the day at the Exhibition venue and also on the following day at a different location.
The exhibition venue is the old passenger shed, just outside the entrance to Bristol Temple Meads train station (Brunel's Old Station). Click here for information about this beautiful venue and the many upcoming events.
To all the visitors who came to the Bristol Exhibition last year, thank you for supporting this event.This year promises to be bigger and better with all your favourite designers, tutors from abroad and, of course, plenty of opportunity to shop for your parchment craft supplies. Butterflies and owls were the theme last year. The make-and-take this year will be three beautiful bookmarks. I wonder what Linda has in store for us for this year's workshop! We'll let you know soon.
This year Kingfisher Crafts, Wightcat Crafts, Fantastic Creations, Craft Fairy, Crystal Parade, Somer Craft Addix, Christine Coleman Collection, Personal Images and last but certainly not least, Parchment Craft Magazine (Warners Publications) with Carl Golder will be bringing their shops to the exhibition and visitors will be able to purchase their parchment craft requirements! Shopping in person is so much more fun than shopping online and it is nice to actually see what you are buying, so we are grateful to the retailers who go to the trouble of packing up and transporting all their wares to Bristol.
Linda will be running one workshop during the day and we are now accepting bookings. Due to the popularity of Linda's workshops we recommend you book as soon as possible. The price will be the same as last year (£15 plus £6.50 for an advance exhibition entrance ticket). Click here to download an order form. A photo of the project will be uploaded as soon as it becomes available.
The make-and-take will be run by Sally Burrell and Fiona McNab. There will be a small charge of £3.50 to cover the cost of the materials. The project, Bookmarks, was designed by the Organiser, Pat Murphy.
