A photography exhibition featuring portraits of Dartmoor's 20 finest artisans is launching at the prestigious Devon Guild of Craftsmen in Bovey Tracey this March. 

Blacksmiths, wood-turners, shoe-makers, weavers, potters and cider makers are among the traditional traders photographed by Suzy Bennett. 

The exhibition is attracting a great deal of press interest, with features in The Daily Telegraph, Devon Life, The Moorlander, Dartmoor Magazine and Manor Magazine due out shortly. 

Further features are expected in the travel sections of The Guardian and The Times in late spring, and several US travel titles are also interested. The project has the support of Visit Dartmoor and Dartmoor National Park Authority.

The exhibition forms part of The Dartmoor Artisan Trail, an arts, craft and food trail, and it is the first of its kind in the UK. It launches on March 4th, 2017.

If you'd like to sponsor the exhibition at The Devon Guild of Craftsmen, please get in touch. The deadline is Monday, 13th February.
