Unearthed: London Craft Week

Craft Central Gallery . May 2017

Unearthed was an installation of work exhibited during London Craft Week 2017. Exploring ideas surrounding the archaeological and the re-discovered we used wood, textiles and earth to create a series of experimental objects that transformed Craft Central’s Gallery into a space where the past and present met through the traditions and future of making. For the first time we were able to exhibit works of a more abstract and ambiguous nature that examined material and process in a more investigative way. Resolved pieces sat alongside those that were in a state of transition, opening up a dialogue in which the audience was able to question the very nature of the work and the artist’s process behind it.

Alongside the exhibition we hosted two workshops, one teaching spoon carving and the other hand stitching. Each workshop took place in the gallery and allowed participants to fully immerse themselves in the hand crafting of objects.
