Hobbycraft NEC Birmingham 16-19 March 2017

 

Sadly we won't be able to man a stand at this years Hobby Crafts, 16-19 March 2017 at the NEC Birmingham although we are hoping to be back there in 2018.

This is a way of promoting The Guild of Enamellers, with demonstrations, showing examples of members work and talking to the visitors. We need help to do this so if anyone would like to volunteer for either a full or half day, please do contact us.

Travel expenses are covered . And entry for volunteers is free.

This is a great opportunity to chat about enamelling, and also to look around the exhibition yourself.
