This exhibition presents a wide selection of artists, makers and designers who work with paper as their medium. The exhibition explores the versatility of paper and how this ancient material is used in contemporary craft and design.

About

Exhibits include terracotta paper pulp items by Debbie Wijskamp, a new hand cut paper hanging by Sue Shields and Fine Paperware, a collection of paper cups inspired by traditional ceramic styles such as Jasperware by Rebecca Wilson.

The Paper Rhythms collection of paper weave and braid by Mayumi Kaneko (Japan) and Jennie Parry (UK) will also feature as part of the exhibition. Origami and kumihimo techniques are used by the pair with great respect for the purity of form for which the Japanese culture is so revered, shedding new light on this Japanese tradition.
