CGS are raising funds for a new website

Thanks to the generosity of many of our established makers and the help of Will Farmer at Fieldings Auction House Stourbridge, we have raised a substantial sum towards the cost of the new CGS website.

However some pieces did not reach their reserve and are still available. These include;
Laura Hart’s amazing Orchid, Ingrid Hunter’s Keepsake & scent bottle, Nancy Sutcliffe’s Crabtastic and Amana Lawrence’s The Pheasant and the Bottle Flies.

If you are interested in any of these or any of the other available work please contact Pam Reekie admin@cgs.org.uk for details.
