Unique Gifts – A Handmade Christmas

The Barn at Bury Court has hosted a number of art exhibitions and Christmas fairs over the years and this year we decided to organise our own.  Unique Gifts – A Handmade Christmas showcases predominently local art and crafts and with nearly 40 stallholders, it will be a fantastic Christmas shopping opportunity.

Meet some of the makers …

Ashcroft Ceramics, Chawton: Mike Bush uses stoneware clay to throw pots and bowls which he decorates with his own glazes.  His career as a Research Chemist has certainly helped him develop his art.
