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 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 this year, thank you for supporting this event. It certainly is becoming the place where everyone wants to be, demonstrators, teachers as well as visitors. We try to make the day interesting with make-and-take and workshops. Butterflies and owls were the theme this year; always difficult to judge how long these projects take as some visitors are so quick and race away and almost finish while other visitors can't quite get as much done as they would like.

In 2014 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 with Carl Golder and Lucie Roper (Warners Publications) brought their shops to the exhibition and visitors were 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. We do hope they will come back again in 2015.
Linda ran two workshops: 10:30 to 12:30 and 1:30 to 3:30. The project, a 3D Owl in White Work with a special twist, was a huge success!
Details of Linda's 2015 workshop project and registration forms will be available in due course. The price will be the same as last year (£15 plus £6.50 for an advance exhibition entrance ticket).
Gail's beautiful 2014 make-and-take butterfly project
The make-and-take next year will be run by Sally Burrell. There will be a small charge of £3.50 to cover the cost of the materials. A photograph of the project will be available nearer the time.
