Since the exhibition opened on Saturday, hundreds of visitors have dropped into the centre, in Palace Green, to admire some examples of members’ work which ranges from lacquered bowls, to inlaid plates and turned vases.

Many of the items on display are also for sale, with dozens of items being sold over the course of the 10-day exhibition. The event comes to an end on Monday.

Members will be on-hand throughout to offer advice about the guild while there were live open-air demonstrations for members of the public to enjoy.
