Be inspired by new textiles and jewellery from West Sweden

About

Textil/Juvel: Contemporary Craft from West Sweden is a stunning and thought provoking exhibition of contemporary jewellery and textiles from seven leading makers, reflecting current trends in Swedish making. Textil/Juvel is the fourth in the Art Unpacked series of exhibitions from Chrysalis Arts, and has been devised with Konsthantverkscentrum - The Crafts Centre, Sweden.

 

The artists in Textil/Juvel weave together a high level of skill and story, combining traditional techniques and new technologies to explore our relationship with the world. The exhibition demonstrates how artists from West Sweden are taking their rich craft heritage to forge new ways of working, using natural materials - seeds, wood, appropriated machine made objects and finely crafted metal and textiles. Textil/Juvel is a snapshot of a dynamic craft movement in Sweden, concerned with the natural world and our impact on it.
