The seventh arts and crafts exhibition promoted by the Bristol and Clifton Society was held in November at the Fine Arts Academy in the former city. It was opened by the Dowager Duchess of Beaufort, and the Bishop of Bristol made an excellent address. Nearly two thousand exhibits were comprised in the twelve sections among which they were distributed, and in nearly every department there were indications of improvement over previous similar displays. The demonstrations in pottery and spinning were watched with great curiosity. The Canterbury Weavers had a specially interesting representation. While the section of painting and sculpture was attractive, it was in the wide range of handicrafts represented that most interest was shown, and to which by far the most of the exhibition space was devoted.

Certificates - and in a few cases medals - were awarded as follows: -
