The Association for Contemporary Jewellery

is devoted to the promotion, representation, understanding and development of contemporary jewellery in the United Kingdom and abroad.

Founded as a membership association in 1997 and registered as a Limited Company in 2006, it recognises a need to foster discussion, debate and critical review and interaction amongst its members. To this end we organise conferences, lectures, seminars, workshops and an annual general meeting for our members. Our regular newsletter, findings, features reviews, information, comment, book offers and discounts and is of benefit to both our members and the wider public. We also produce a monthly e-bulletin featuring news and opportunities.

We welcome as members practising jewellers, associated designers and crafts people, educators, students, gallery owners and retailers, museum curators, critics and collectors - indeed, anyone with an interest in contemporary jewellery.

RHS Garden Hyde Hall
RHS Garden Hyde Hall is one of the finest gardens in the East of England, its location among rolling hills and fantastic panoramic views can often surprise the visitor to Essex. This 145-hectare (360-acre) estate is constantly evolving, as the gardening team strive to retain the original intimacy and charm of this horticultural gem, while at the same time aiming to restore much of the estate to its former rural glory, including its historic hedgerows and woodland.
 
The Craft In Focus event here is only staged once a year - annually each August. Previous visitors will be pleased to know that the building work within the Garden is now complete, there is an improved entrance system and a new restaurant providing visitors with an additional facility and more choice.
 
The craft fair will take place in marquees within the Garden and admission to the Garden also gives admission to the craft fair. There will also be a variety of live music to enjoy.
 
Dates: 24-27 August
Times: 10 am - 5 pm daily (last admission one hour before closing)
 
 
(use CM3 8ETfor Sat Nav)
 
Dogs are not allowed in the garden, with the exception of registered support dogs. http://www.craftinfocus.com/
