Manchester Craft & Design Centre’s 2016 MMU Graduate Award winner Joshua Till puts a contemporary twist on a traditional craft with his nature-inspired steam bent furniture.


Steam bending was once a vital practice, paramount to the production of weapons, tools and water vessels, but with the advance of technology it has become less common. Joshua is hoping to change all that by bringing this traditional process into the 21st Century.

As a low energy, environmentally responsible and economical method of manipulating wood, the technique has a lot of potential for experimentation and Joshua is taking full advantage of that fact to produce a new, exciting collection for his first ever solo exhibition.

FREE Launch Event, Thursday 16th February, 6-8pm

Refreshments and live music from MCDC resident DJ Ailsa McLaggan of Living Room Dance Club.
