MAKE: a celebration of Craft

Ruthin Craft Centre

18 February – 23 April 2017

The exhibition MAKE: is a celebration of contemporary Craft, showing works by over fifty artist-makers across ceramics, jewellery, glass, textiles, metal, furniture and wood. It is based on a two-year investigation that asked a question What is Craft? and highlights the diversity of artistic activity that contemporary makers engage in.

For the past two years the Paul Hamlyn Foundation has funded Ruthin Craft Centre’s What is Craft? project. The project looked at many aspects of Craft examining different ideas and approaches to making through Materials, Decoration, Process and Function. The exhibition of the work from over fifty applied artists, continues the conversation of what it is to MAKE.

Many of these designers included Goldsmiths’ Fair jewellers and Silversmiths…
