News and Events - Celebration of Craftsmanship and Design 2015

Wednesday 17 June 2015

Celebration of Craftsmanship & Design (CCD) is the UK's largest selling exhibition of high-quality bespoke furniture, and it is back again this month. Established in 1994 by Betty Norbury, the show has evolved and grown significantly and now displays the work of around 70 designer-makers. The emphasis is on furniture, but each year this is complemented by work from several other disciplines such as jewellery, art and glass.

There are several competitions held at CCD, including The Alan Peters Award for Excellence for emerging young talent in bespoke furniture, the Woodland Heritage Award, the Best Use of British Timber, The Worshipful Company of Furniture Makers Design Prize and The Chair Competition.


When: 22-31 August, 2015

Where: Thirlestaine Long Gallery, Cheltenham College, Bath Road, Cheltenham GL53 7LD
