The Essex Guild attends some fairs and festivals during the year, at which you can sometimes have a try at silk painting, and admire or even buy examples of our work.
This year we plan to attend the following events with works or a stand where you can meet some of our members, see them working and purchase their work as scarves and other gifts, or (for some events only) even have a go at silk painting!
11th-15th October- The Knitting and Stitching Show, Alexandra Palace, London
We will be at one of the biggest and best known crafting fairs in Europe. Come and be tempted by our wares and see us at work (or have a go at silk painting, some years) then enjoy all the other crafts and stalls! See more here.
16-18th November- Simply Christmas- ExCel London
We will be representing the National guild and have items for sale as well as (possibly) demos of silk painting in action. For details of the event and how to get there by Tube/DLR see here.
