Bluecoat Display Centre: Toy Story Exhibition


9 May – 28 June 2014

Open daily


This exhibition will feature the work of toy makers who employ traditional techniques which encourage children to engage and interact with toys and to use their imaginations. The exhibition is also intended for the enjoyment of families, who may discover toys which will be loved and enjoyed for generations.

Toy Story celebrates the golden age of handcrafted toys and games. The idea for this show began following a conversation with a regular customer who had bought hand designed toys for his children which they had cherished, but was bemoaning the lack of beautifully designed toys in the world.  Toy Story will provide inspiration for adults and children alike, which defies the throw away aspect of our society.

Exhibitors will include Ed Boxall, Susan Evans, Diana Heredia, Anna Howarth, Annie Hutchinson, Annabel Little, Ian McKay, Keith Newstead, Jeff Soan, Sally Weatherill, Donna Wilson & Jan Zalud.
