Worcester City Art Gallery & Museum aims to takes the stress out of Christmas shopping at a special event this Saturday.

From 11am to 1pm shoppers will be treated to a free mince pie and festive drink as they peruse the beautiful Crafted for You exhibition which showcases some of the best craft makers in the Midlands.

A sumptuous and colourful range of jewellery, ceramics, glassware, textiles and prints are on show in the exhibition and all available to purchase, with 10% discount on the special event day.

Maggie Wallace, curator of the exhibition, says: “Crafted for You is a celebration of craft with so many different makers on show all so talented and producing beautiful wares. It is ideal if you are looking for a unique Christmas gift for someone special.”

There is also 10% off purchases all day in the fabulous Art Gallery Shop which has an excellent range of Christmas cards and gifts to suit all pockets. All proceeds from the Gallery Shop go back into the Art Gallery & Museum, enabling them to stage a fabulous programme of exhibitions and look after the city’s rich collections.

On Wednesday 20 December families can drop in to create their own festive gift boxes with sparkles and gems or scented oranges, cones and berries, perfect for wrapping that extra special present. Over the Christmas holiday period they can also add their hopes for 2018 to our magical Wish Tree as well as enjoying the Warhol to Walker exhibition on tour from the British Museum.

Crafted for You is on until 27 January at Worcester City Art Gallery & Museum. The Art Gallery & Museum is open Monday-Saturday, 10.30am-4.30pm, and entry is free.
