The second of our architecturally themed exhibitions; Space Craft, is a Crafts Council Touring Exhibition that explores the relationship between craft making and our built environment.The exhibition brings together two disciplines, often considered as separate, and presents work by makers inspired by architecture, and architects that are deeply connected to making.


The exhibition was inspired by a 2010 Crafts magazine by architect Robin Sjoholm, which outlined frustration at how technology had transformed the process of creating buildings – decoupling design from an understanding of materiality and even physical space. He was not alone in his dissatisfaction, and recently a slew of young firms have emerged that put the physical act of making at the heart of their work; examples of which can be seen in this exhibition.
Makers have long been intrigued by architecture and space.

As Edmund de Waal once said, when a pot is thrown ‘you’re making a volume in a very short space of time; you’re creating an internal space.’ The engagement with architecture of the makers featured in this exhibition isn’t expressed in the depiction of buildings or drawing of cityscapes. Their work is architectural in an abstract sense, using materials and techniques to build form and create a sense of space.
