Methods of Making brings together designers working in Britain and explores different materials, concepts and making processes used in contemporary furniture.


This is the first exhibition of furniture to be hosted by the NCCD since 2008. Alongside pieces of exquisite furniture, eight specially commissioned films will shine a light into the artists’ studios, demonstrating their use of conventional hand-crafting techniques alongside modern technologies.

The films being made in collaboration with the University of Lincoln, capture the artists’ ways of working, thinking, planning and construction. The exhibition is an exploration of contemporary furniture design and the artists behind it and will be shown as a series of room sets.

Alongside Methods of Making we are proud to present a small selected group showcase of British furniture designers affiliated to our sister organisation Design-Nation. Exploring alternative processes and design concepts this showcase adds to the wealth of talent in the exhibition line-up.
