New Craftsman's historic 50th Anniversary event promises to be a unique and inspiring event which will comprise of a huge catalogue of saleable works as well as a handful of works on loan from private collections by many New Craftsman artists of the past 50 years.

The exhibition spans the whole of the gallery from 18th of August - 5th of September and from the 11th of October - 10th of November.
