A WIDE variety of local crafts will be on display in a new exhibition at the Fire Station gallery from next Friday.

Most of the items in the exhibition have been produced by members of the Henley Arts and Crafts Guild, with a few invited guest exhibitors.

Spokesman Elaine Fear said: “This could be the ideal venue to find that original Christmas gift or just to treat yourself to something new for the home. Visitors are encouraged to come along to be surprised and delighted and perhaps to find that perfect seasonal gift.”

Mother and daughter, Jill and Kate Findlay, will be exhibiting colourful patchwork of various shapes and sizes. Delicate stitched pictures by Jayne Ward will be on display in addition to work by many other well-known members of the guild.

Guest exhibitors are Andrew Hazelden (from the Yarnton Pottery) who will be showing some reduction fired lustre ceramics, Jeanne Jackson who is exhibiting her brightly-coloured, hand painted ceramics, and Richard Ballantyne who creates quirky, crackle-glazed animals. Adrian Brooks will also be exhibiting some of his wall-mounted “magical” boxes.

The exhibition runs from Friday, November 29 until Monday, December 2 from 10am to 4pm. There will be an open iew on the Friday evening from 6pm to 8pm, to which all are welcome.
