Weald Crafts (formerly Wealden Craftworkers) is a non-profit making organisation whose main objective is to promote both functional and decorative crafts across Sussex, Kent and Surrey.

Our aim is to provide suitable venues for the sale of members work and encourage, by means of education, the development of traditional skills within the county. It is our intention to highlight the wealth of skills available locally and in doing so, provide the opportunity for members of the public to have access to a wide range of quality products at a reasonable cost.

All members live or work within 30 miles of the venue at which they are selling and are encouraged to use locally sourced materials.

The Skies the Limit

Sky disc of Nebra

In 1999 a fantastic discovery was made in Germany that astounded archeologists.  On the top of a mountain, at one of a thousand burial sites in the area, an astronomical clock was found that has since been proved to be 3600 years old.  Made of bronze and gold, it is the world's oldest depiction of the cosmic phenomena.

Anthony Elson, a silversmith of some renown, recently asked one of our members, Peter Castle, to collaborate in the production of a replica disc with a surround which represents the rings of Saturn.The disc, 18" in diameter, has been made in solid silver with gold embellishments and the surround is in acrylic, ringed on the front and polished to the rear.  Now complete, the disc will in due course be on permanent display at an exhibition.

One Good Turn

 

One of our members, Peter Castle, recently received an unexpected accolade.

The Association of Woodturners of Great Britain hold an International Seminar biennually at Loughborough University. Demonstrators and delegates attend from all around the world, for example, this year there were representatives from as far afield as New Zealand, South Africa and a number from The Americas.
