The eighth in the series, the exhibition provides a great opportunity to purchase and commission work from some of the best makers in the region. This exhibition is developed in partnership with Herbert Art Gallery and is part of Craftspace's 30th anniversary programme.
Featuring both recent graduates and makers with established reputations, there is a wealth of creativity on display, including ceramics, jewellery, metalwork and textiles. Selected by an expert panel through open entry, it promotes the best contemporary craft from makers living and working in the Midlands or with a strong recent regional connection.
Selected exhibitors include jeweller Dauvit Alexander who creates striking jewellery for men combining found materials with precious gemstones, Aimee Bollu who also takes inspiration from found items which she combines with beautiful minimal ceramic vessels, John Grayson who uses traditional metal forming and enamel decorating processes to create whimsical, humorous and decorative metal objects and Karina Thompson who pushes the boundaries of digital embroidery.
