To see, buy and be inspired by the very best work by designer makers from the Sussex area, come along to Parham House and Gardens this month.

The Sussex Guild is delighted to be invited to Parham for the sixth time where designer makers will be exhibiting in a marquee in the grounds. Elizabethan Parham House never fails to please. You can spend a delightful day at this beautiful venue, wandering through the park and gardens, enjoying delicious refreshments while meeting the talented designer-makers of the Sussex Guild who will be pleased to discuss their work with you.

Creative textile artist Wendy Dolan will be one of the designer-makers showing at Parham. Wendy specialises in machine embroidery taking her inspiration from nature, architecture and the local landscape. For those interested in embroidery it is interesting to see her contemporary textile pictures complimenting the antique needlework in the Parham collection.
