Made in the Middle is a recurring touring exhibition that celebrates some of the best contemporary craft and applied art from the Midlands.


Featuring both recent graduates and makers with established reputations, the makers offer an insight into the skill, creativity and innovative practice within the region. Selected by an expert panel through open entry, the exhibition reflects the latest developments and trends in craft. The eighth in the series, the exhibition will explore the value of craft both economically and socially. Presenting ceramics, jewellery, metalwork and textiles, the exhibition provides a great opportunity to purchase and commission work from some of the best makers in the region.

Made in the Middle is a partnership between Craftspace and the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum in collaboration with The National Centre for Craft & Design and is part of Craftspace’s 30th anniversary programme.
