There are two main types of exhibition that the Braid Society runs.   We have an annual Travelling Show that can be seen at a number of events running in the UK throughout the year and every two to three years we run an Exhibition at a specific venue displaying the best of the work from Society Member.  The next exhibition in 2023 will celebrate our 30th Anniversary and will be shown in England, Wales and Scotland.
