Ten members of the South Hams Arts Forum (SHAF) present a delightful array of arts and crafts ideal for the Christmas shopper:

Sandy Litchfield’s English lead-free pewter creations make ideal gifts for Christmas, birthdays or 'just because'. She makes jewellery, games, bowls and items combining wood and pewter.

Fiona Cocks brings her new ‘Fiona’ range, inspired by her work at the Bigbury Mint. She makes matching jewellery from silver, copper and brass, as well as a sea glass range inspired by the Devon coast and using recycled materials.

There will also be beautiful handmade, contemporary classic silver jewellery by Charlotte Dalrymple-Hay.

Caroline Barker will be selling little handmade books, original prints and cards.

Anna Ventura shows inkwork animals, cards and other printed gifts featuring her works. She will have both framed and unframed pieces, originals and limited edition prints.

Jane Mahood will bring mosaic Christmas decorations as well as unusual and unique pieces suitable for Christmas gifts, including tables, bowls, clocks and objets d’art.

Mark Weston Lewis is a professional wood turner and his range for Presentmaker 2018 will include bowls, vases, boxes and candle holders from fallen trees or pruned branches.

Jennifer Cooper shows a selection of mounted and unmounted prints and Christmas cards. She will also be showcasing commissions for personalised Christmas presents.

Stacey Hardwick’s textile art, created using free motion embroidery, is inspired by the beautiful South Hams and her love for the natural environment. It is bright, cheerful and evocative. As well as original fabric pictures Stacey will have prints of her artwork available to buy: a perfect gift for people who love this area.

Janice Walton will be exhibiting oil paintings on block canvases, of both South African wild flowers and local scenes including Burgh Island. She will also have a selection of personalised cards.
