The above image shows a small selection from a number of artefacts both antiquarian and from the modern age and ranging from the ‘primitive’ (however defined) to the pastoral that will be on show this autumn at The Winchcombe Archive Collection.  These include the secular and religious products and creativity of country craftsmen of the past as well as early twentieth century responses to pastoral traditons of art and craft in the guise of the revivalist slipwares of Michael Cardew and his inter-war team at Winchcombe Pottery.

The show opens at 9am on Saturday 20th October 2018 and runs for just three weeks. On the opening day we will be offering an afternoon Cream Tea with the Curator to include a handling session of artefacts from our permanent collections.  A formal talk is also planned for one Saturday afternoon later in the show’s run.
